Readings to remember: Thomas Kling

Posted in Thomas Kling by Heiko Strunk on 15. March 2014

Almost a classic: The ‘young’ Thomas Kling (June 5, 1957 – April 1, 2005) reads the opening poem of his book geschmacksverstärker (1989): ratinger hof, zettbeh (3).

This clip was originally part of an early portrait about this later legendary German poet by the TV programme ‘aspekte’ (1989).

And I do remember very well that I have seen it back then, got deeply impressed and bought the book just the other day.
