Episode 22: Jenny Erpenbeck
Jenny Erpenbeck was born in the former GDR to a family of storytellers and tried to do something different, studying drama and working as stage director. In 1999 she released her first book and realized that being a writer was a little more family friendly. In March 2012, Jenny was a guest at the Adelaide Writers Festival and the Goethe-Institut Australia. Interviewed by Trudi Latour (SBS German Radio), Jenny discusses her latest book 'Visitation' ('Heimsuchung'). The German title has two meanings, to search for a home or to lose a home and be haunted by its memories. The book deals with 100 years of German history by exploring the lives of the changing inhabitants of a house in Brandenburg as they live though the Nazi regime and the conflict between East and West Germany. © SBS German Radio.
