Ulrich Peltzer

Ulrich Peltzer (born in 1956 in Krefeld) is one of the most recognised German writers of the middle generation. He is the Director of the Literature Section of the Akademie der Künste and has been a member of the German Academy for Language and Poetry since 2015. In his big city novels, he whips the reader over the ear with punk and underground, as said in a recent review. In his novels, music is an attitude, a way of life and a form of reflection.
