Schuh's A to Z of Life: from the "Simpsons" to high art, from the significance of briefcases to the nature of love – Franz Schuh describes the things that hold our world together.
In his new book, Franz Schuh experiments with the interview as literary form, treating questions as if posed by himself, answers as if given by others – and vice versa. The process produces memoirs that give a "taste of a life" of a man born in 1947: his childhood in Vienna, the end of post-war anarchy, high school, university, a mood of departure influenced strongly by "Swinging London", the Kreisky era, the stony path to becoming a writer.
Franz Schuh is a philosopher from Vienna, and since 2006, when he received the Leipzig Book Fair Prize for his book Schwere Vorwürfe, schmutzige Wäsche, a power to be reckoned with beyond Austria's borders, too.
