Behind a church


The reading in Tübingen took place behind a church – unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of my audience. So I decided to opt for a picture of the benches.
The last reading of this tour will be awarded with an 8 - also because two employees of my German publisher were willing to carry my suitcase. As you can see on the picture below. The fact that the organizers of this last reading forgot to pay me, consciously or unconsciously, is not that important.
There is a sense of relief that the tour is over, but it’s a small relief. Every reading tour confronts you with this question: who needs friends when you have customers?
