Jan Cornelius

Jan Cornelius was born in Resita, in the Romanian region of Banat, and studied Romance and English studies. Since 1977 he has been living in Düsseldorf as an author, culture journalist and literary translator. About his last book, "Narrenstück oder das Wundern des Dolmetschers beim Betrachten der Welt," the Berliner Zeitung wrote, it is "the most absurd novel of spring 2013." Barbed irony, subtle word play and linguistic lightness make his books especially enjoyable reading.
