Ingo Schulze: Die rechtschaffenen Mörder
The protagonist of Ingo Schulze’s new novel is the highly respected Dresden antiquarian bookseller Norbert Paulini, in whose shop book lovers find treasures and like-minded people. Paulini changes suddenly, however, becomes hot-tempered, unforgiving and is suspected of being involved in xenophobic actions. Is Paulini a reactionary or a revolutionary, a tragic figure or a murderer? How does such a book lover become a right-wing perpetrator? A brilliant novel about pressing questions of our time. Conversation with Ulrike Vedder and Dresden author Thomas Rosenlöcher.
