Christian Kracht’s World Literature: A Topography

Eine Topographie

Edited by: Stefan Bronner and Björn Weyand

Every new work by the Swiss author Christian Kracht further expands the topographical range of his literary settings, which gradually extend to encompass the entire globe. In this sense, Kracht’s work epitomizes world literature in a contemporary, provocative way: every location is a temporary sojourn in an aesthetic "in-between." The volume addresses the topographical and poetological dimensions of Kracht’s writings.


"Der Band knüpft an die bestehenden Tendenzen in der Kracht-Forschung an, eröffnet aber auch neue Perspektiven."
