Uwe Timm is one of the most prolific, successful and important writers in Germany today.   His work enjoys popular appeal and has consistently received the highest critical acclaim.

Uwe Timm Volume II updates and extends the first Uwe Timm, published in 1999.  It begins with the author’s acceptance speech for the Jakob-Wassermann prize and includes a fascinating interview with him about the recent development of his career.   Critical essays by Matin Hielscher, Manfred Durzak, Rhys Williams and David Basker focus both on Timm’s latest work and on new perspectives on his early career which contemporary debates have offered.   The volume includes a full bibliography.
