Christopher Kloeble: Home Made in India

Goethe- Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan and Khoj International Artists’ Association invite you to a reading by Christopher Kloeble.

Christopher Kloeble will be reading from Almost Everything Very Fast originally published in 2012 and again from Home Made in India. He will be in conversation with Indian author Chandrahas Choudhury (Arzee the Dwarf) about cultural perceptions and misunderstandings.

In his new book Home made in India: a love story between Delhi and Berlin Christopher Kloeble traces what it means to commute between the continents: perceptive, amusing, and finely nuanced. There are clichés and stereotypes here and there – Indians mock the Germans’ impatience and devoutness to rules, whereas the Germans often have a somehow exotic image of India.
