>> For the first time: all the short stories in one volume

The work of one of the most important storytellers of our age, timelessly fresh: First Prize draws together Burkhard Spinnen's short stories from the collections Fat Man in the Sea, Cold Duck and The Substitute Goalie in a new edition that also includes stories published in various places. The volume spotlights a major contribution to contemporary German literature: ever since his first volume of short stories was published, Burkhard Spinnen has been considered 'the kind of writer we've been short of for a long time.' (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung).

»Spinnen writes, as if he had taken classes with T.C. Boyle and then trumped his teacher.«
DIE ZEIT

»There is simply no subject, however marginal or remote, that Burkhard Spinnen could not bring to sparkle.«
Hessischer Rundfunk

»Burkhard Spinnen plays in a league of his own.«
WDR 5

»Especially the seeming effortlessness of Burkhard Spinnen's writing has become legendary.«
Christian Thomas, Frankfurter Rundschau
