Christian Krachts Weltliteratur
[Christian Kracht’s World Literature: A Topography]
Ed. by Bronner, Stefan / Weyand, Björn
Aims and Scope
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.
