Friedrich Christian Delius

Friedrich Christian Delius was born in Rome in 1943 and grew up in Central Germany. He did his doctoral thesis in German studies at the FU Berlin in 1970 and subsequently worked as book editor. Today he divides his time between the Italian capital and Berlin.
In 1965, his first collection of poems entitled Kerbholz appeared. Apart from poetry, he has since published short stories, radio dramas, and novels. Some of his best-known works are Ribbeck’s Pears (1991), The Sunday I Became World Champion (1994), The Walk from Rostock to Syracuse (1995), The Flattering Tongue (1999), My Year as a Murderer (2004) and Portrait of Mother as a Young Woman (2006). Delius is currently writer-in-residence in the town of Bergen-Enkheim and has won numerous awards, most recently the Schubert Literary Prize, the German Critics’ Prize and the Joseph Breitbach Prize.
