"The great Austrian writer Ingeborg Bachmann died in Rome but was buried in Klagenfurt, the city of her childhood. Only days later, Uwe Johnson made a pilgrimage to her grave site and to Klagenfurt itself, which Bachmann had always promised to show him. Johnson re-creates her presence by layering the cultural, physical, and historical landscape of the city - from its picturesque lake and totemic dragon to a personal visit from Hitler during Bachmann's childhood - with Bachmann's letters, interviews, and published writings. The result is a biographical montage that explores the vast forces behind a single extraordinary life. A Trip to Klagenfurt illuminates the writers' friendship as well as Johnson's entire generation."--BOOK JACKET

"Fuer Zwecke der brutalen Verstaendigung" : Hans Magnus Enzensberger, Uwe Johnson : der Briefwechsel by Hans Magnus Enzensberger( Book )
7 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
1959, kurz nach Uwe Johnsons Übersiedelung in den Westen Berlins und der Veröffentlichung seines Debütromans Mutmassungen über Jakob, beginnen der Briefwechsel und die Freundschaft zwischen ihm und Hans Magnus Enzensberger. Über einen Zeitraum von acht Jahren verständigen sie sich über die literarische und politische Lage und diskutieren die Spielräume politischen Engagements. Zugleich aber zeugen die 161 Dokumente von einer Auseinandersetzung über Möglichkeiten und Grenzen von Freundschaft. Bereits im Oktober 1966 forderte Uwe Johnson, den gemeinsamen Briefwechsel "nicht mehr fuer eine kuenftige Edition und Altersversorgung einzurichten sondern fuer Zwecke der brutalen Verstaendigung". Über scheinbar Alltäglichem kommt es zu prinzipiellen Betrachtungen und zuletzt zu einem Zerwürfnis: Daß Uwe Johnson seine Berliner Wohnungen Enzensbergers erster Frau Dagrun und dessen Bruder Ulrich zur Verfügung stellt, führt in Aporien von Vertrauen, Bürgschaft und Verantwortung. Ein Jahr später erreicht selbst diese
