Authors on Rolf Stolz

Martin Walser: "Your texts have pleased me very much. But the editors always want to start with a novel. It's the market that decides."

Luise Rinser: "I think you have a remarkable talent. (Walser - Robert, not Martin! - Kafka, but in your own way.) The content tortures me, but the form evokes my admiration."

Hans Bender, essay-writer, former editor from 1954 to 1980 of the famous German literary journal "Akzente": " I wish you many readers for your publications and that they will be touched as much by them as I was."

August Everding (1928-1999, famous scenic director of the National Theatres of Bavaria in Munich since 1992): "It is a completely particular play, either by the idea and by the form, an individualistic and original work of art. "The Post" ("Der Posten") shows many imagination in the language, it is elaborated in an artful manner, extraordinarily and poetically."
