Jörg Schröder, born in Berlin in 1938, was the enfant terrible of the German publishing scene in the second half of the twentieth century, as well as a great discoverer of literature.
He began working at Melzer Verlag in 1965, which he rescued with THE STORY OF O. In 1969 Schöder parted acrimoniously with the publishing house – all of its employees and most of its authors followed him to his newly founded März Verlag. In 1987, Schröder had to leave März for health reasons.
