Hanns-Josef  Ortheil - Blue Trail


"A diary with a difference." FAZ

Hanns-Josef Ortheil's diary covers the years 1989 to 1995. During this period he wrote down his own personal impressions of the fall of the Wall and the slow process of overcoming the division of the country in the following years. He spends long periods in Berlin and travels extensively in what used to be East Germany and writes down his perception of the changes he had never thought would be possible. But Hanns-Josef Ortheil also travels as a writer, making notes of how he himself changed during these years and reflecting on these changes, and in the process he shows something of how writers born after the war felt during these years.
