Gast Groeber (1960) is a pedagogical and administrative worker and writes for young people and adults. Although he has been writing for a long time, he did not start his first publications until he was fifty years old. All six of his books were shortlisted for the Luxembourg Literature Prize, and he was awarded the EU Prize for Literature in 2016.
Each of the nine short stories is about a moment in the life of the protagonist, which forces him to reflect on the meaning of his life so far or to look at the world from a completely new perspective. The stories are written in contemporary but also rhythmic, partly also experimental language, which seeks to evoke a plastic experience of characters by the reader, while at the same time painting Luxembourg’s everyday life.
