R.I.P. Paul Wühr

I never learned about this until now, but Paul Wühr, one of the more interesting contemporary German experimental authors, died on July 12th this year.

I've only read a few of his books – notably Das falsche Buch, as well as the poetry collections Rede and Sage, plus the audio play (Hörspiel) So spricht unsereiner and Hagestedt's Paul Wühr. Materialien zu seinem Werk – but kalogrenant was a big fan.

All the best to his friends and family.
