Jaroslav  Rudiš - Winterberg's Last Journey


"Winterberg’s Last Journey is a great European novel."

NDR Kultur

"A compelling, melancholy and highly comic road novel whose hero lives up to his illustrious ancestors from Chaplin's The Tramp to Kerouac's On the Road."


"Jaroslav Rudiš creates an original literary appropriation of a history-laden terrain."

Chamisso-Preis/Hellerau 2019 Jury decision

"a crazy railroad novel across Central Europe"

Süddeutsche Zeitung

"Jaroslav Rudiš […] recounts European history as a syndrome. As if the grotesque was a pain reliever against madness, this novel is a tragicomedy."

Neue Zürcher Zeitung

"It requires instinct and ability to bring both the light and the ponderous into a hovering balance – Jaroslav Rudiš succeeds naturally in this novel."


"[Rudiš'] novel is truly groundbreaking, a guide to living together among neighbours who want to learn from history."

Chemnitzer Freie Presse

"A railroad novel of sepia-coloured, cheerful melancholy"


"He is impelled to make stories and history known – regardless how. The main thing is they strike a chord in the soul."

MDR, artour

"Winterberg’s Last Journey is a great European novel about listening – but also about cultural uncertainties and historical relationships and contexts."

Freie Presse (Chemnitz)

"Stories abound in this book – when we read them, we can perhaps better understand what has gone amiss today."


"With narrative delight Rudiš amasses a mountain of stories from past and present – and succeeds in making readers simply unwilling to stop reading [...]"


"Jaroslav Rudiš handles words like a juggler a couple dozen balls, plates, and rings. Nothing is dropped. It all appears very effortless."

Sächsische Zeitung
