In a select circle

Nothing big, nothing loud, rather something intimate, intended for a small circle of people, to whom reading means more than just processing information. At the center of interest will be a book. In the evening of the event, we will inform you, when our room Babenwohl turns into "Schwärzler's fine literary salon". Even who will present it, should remain our best kept secret. So much is already betrayed. It will be a book that has had a great impact on the life of our guest. Whereby we are not concerned with the noise of literary relevance, nor with the attraction of celebrities. It is important for us that you get to know a person, based on his experiences with reading that is important to him.

We would be pleased to receive you in the comforting state of curiosity. And with an appetite for a menu, which is served alternately with the lecture of our guest.

Albert Camus, The Case "Albert Camus is one of those authors and thinkers who showed me in my youth that there can and must be ethics outside religions. In his book The Fall, the search for such ethics is portrayed in a rousing manner, based on the fate of a doubting individual. "

Alex Capus, Skystriker

The Swiss author Alex Capus (* 1961) is a master of the biographical narrative.
Based on precisely researched persons and events, he designs exciting, exemplary literary biographies. The book "Himmelsstürmer" features twelve portraits showing unusual people from Switzerland. They are all on the lookout for self-realization, often on detours and detours. One marvels at the people and the human being.

Arno Geiger, The old king in his exile

"Arno Geiger's" The old king in his exile "creates in his simplicity a powerful effect: how near / far are our loved ones to us? How does age change us? Familial relationships, the ongoing process of demolishing an individual from this network, dealing with illness and the end of life are the central motives that made this book so impressive for me. I read it before I came to Vorarlberg. Since I live here, I recognize situations, places and people that were so inaccessible to me. "

Jean Grenier, Les Îles

It's one of those books that you do not want to talk about too much, not to talk it out before you read it; I want to lure you with the void.

Als junger Student der Filmwissenschaft begegnete mir in Bela Balázs ein schillernder Grenzgänger zwischen Märchen und modernen Medien, Europäer, Jude und romantischer Träumer, Kommunist und Liebhaber der Bergfilme. Jemand der zwischen alle Fronten fiel, mit allen Illusionen. Irgendwas daran muss mich so gereizt haben, dass ich ihm ins Archiv folgte und seine Schriften herausgab...

Hier noch ein kurzer Text zu Mary Miller:

Big World von Mary Miller gehört zu den wenigen Büchern, die mich vom ersten Satz an gepackt haben. Miller erzählt Geschichten von Menschen, vorwiegend Frauen, die schwere seelische Verluste erlitten haben und in Schieflage durchs Leben schlittern. Ihre Sprache ist radikal und schonungslos, sie erklärt aber nicht, sondern erzählt, ebenso reflektierend wie ironisch; und immer schwingt unter der rauen Oberfläche ein wenig Hoffnung, vor allem aber eine berührende Sehnsucht mit.
