Franz  Hohler - The Caravan at the Bottom of the Milk Jug


Franz Hohler is a master of the miniature form. This volume is a collection of comic, humorous but never innocuous stories written by Hohler over forty years. It is with such stories that he has become a great cabaret artist both in and outside Switzerland, and has made his name as a writer. He has never before published these texts in such a compilation, and they include some as well-known as “Der Weltuntergang” [The End of the World]. In 2002 Franz Hohler won the Kassel Literary Prize for Grotesque Humour. Urs Widener says of him: “Franz Hohler’s achievements are incredible.” So here is Die Karawane, a collection of his grotesque stories – put together by Franz Hohler himself. They are pointed, unsentimental, tragi-comic: Hohler at the peak of his powers of humour.
