Author from Bayerisch Gmain presents English translation of his novel in Southeast Asia

Manila/Bayerisch Gmain, November 02, 2023). The journalist and author Jan Kaulfuhs-Berger, who lives in Bayerisch Gmain, will present the English translation (“The Parisian League”) of his latest novel (“Die Pariser Gesellschaft”) on Monday, November 6 at De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (Antipolo/Manila). The 444-page work, with a slightly adapted author’s name (Jan Gunter Berger), was previously published in Germany in early 2023.

Berger is traveling to Manila these days at the invitation of Assistant Professor Jimmy B. Dillo Jr. who teaches literature at De La Salle College. He will speak to several dozen students during the 90-minute event, focusing in particular on creative writing and the German book market. Dillo, who speaks of Berger’s visit to De La Salle College as “a very great honor”, is also the editor of the English-language edition.
