Denis Scheck, German literary critic and host of 'Druckfrisch'

Hosted by

Esteemed German literary critic Denis Scheck joins us for a special international "meeting of the minds" to appraise the state of book criticism today. Scheck is the host of Druckfrisch, a televised book review with a strident tone. "I would not call my show Bookworm, but Book Dragon," he declares! Topics examined in this lively parley range from the role of the critic to the importance of judgement, from Stephen King to German Gothic.
