The Writer:
One on One
with Bernhard Schlink

Presented with the Goethe Institut
Hosted by CBC's Sandra Abma
"Schlink avoids the easy route of condemnation and salvation . . . The book's real strength is the finely wrought dynamic among the characters, whose relationships and histories are fraught with a powerful sense of tension and possibly untoward potential.
— Publishers Weekly

Bernhard Schlink, international bestselling author of The Reader  and  Guilt About the Past  makes his Writers Festival debut with his latest novel,  The Weekend.  Old friends and lovers reunite for a weekend in a secluded country home after spending decades apart. But this isn’t just any reunion, and their conversations about the old days aren’t your typical reminiscences: After twenty-four years, Jörg, a convicted murderer and terrorist, has been released from prison. Passions are pitted against pragmatism, ideas against actions, and hopes against heartbreaking realities.
