Wolf Wondratschek

Wolf Wondratschek grew up in Karlsruhe. From 1962 to 1967 he studied literature, philosophy and sociology at the universities of Heidelberg, Göttingen and Frankfurt am Main. From 1967 he lived as a freelance writer, initially in Munich. In 1970 and 1971 he taught as a guest lecturer at the University of Warwick, and at the end of the 1980s he traveled extensively to the USA and Mexico, among other places. He has lived in Vienna since 1996.
His first book Früher begann der Tag mit einer Schußwunde (1969) made him famous overnight. Wolf Wondratschek's broad oeuvre consists of novels, poetry, short stories, essays, reportages and radio plays and is translated into many languages.
