I recently returned from Germany where I was doing a bit of work on Raabe and Fontane. While perusing the manuscript of Die Stechlin in the Berlin Stadtmuseum I was broached by a reporter who was doing a story on the Fontane collection there. She asked me a bit about my research and my interest in Fontane. The article appeared on August 6 in the newspaper Die Welt. You can read it here. I’m quoted at the bottom.
