Hanns-Josef  Ortheil - The Trip along the Moselle


On the tracks of The Invention of Life

This unusual book focuses on the diary of a trip along the Moselle River. It was written by the author at the age of eleven and shows how important travel, language and writing were for him in discovering the world and his own life, even in those early days. This impressive document is an important sequel to Ortheil's big autobiographical novel The Invention of Life (2009), and it has the addition of the description of the same journey the author made decades later. The reader also learns why Ortheil keeps going back to certain landscapes and regions time and time again.

"A magnificent portrait of the author as a child…"
