Richard David  Precht - Lenin Only Got as Far as Lüdenscheid


A private and ironic look back at the bestselling author's childhood

As the child of West German left-wingers in provincial Solingen, Richard David Precht has to learn from an early age to distinguish between Good and Bad – socialism and capitalism. He grows up with a very clear idea of who the enemy is – the USA – and obviously Coca Cola is frowned upon every bit as much as ketchup, "Flipper" or "Star Trek". Instead there is the GRIPS-Theater and songs by Degenhardt and Süverküp…

Precht's memories of his childhood and teenage years are an affectionate look back at a political family home – amusing, pensive and with a sensitive awareness of formative details.

•"Precht's combination of personal memories and contemporary history is affectionate, amusing and often very poetic." Bücher
