Nimm die Alpen weg


Ralph Tharayil reads from Nimm die Alpen weg. He tells of his childhood in Switzerland. The story is about the endeavour to want to belong and not give up one's origins. There is the nameless brother and sister who speak in chorus. There is a home with mum and dad, who appear like a deity with their four arms. There is the speed of the bicycles that the children ride out to their games: to the telephone box, to the rubbish tip, into the reeds. And then a new child joins the class and paves the way for the siblings out of their own inner mountains.

The Café-Restaurant DROSTE 1797 serves homemade cakes, tea and coffee.
