Ralf Rothmann (born 10 May 1953, in Schleswig, Schleswig-Holstein) is a German novelist, poet, and dramatist. His novels have been translated into several languages, with Knife Edge (Messers Schneide) and Young Light (Junges Licht) being translated into English. The main subjects of his work are the bourgeois and proletarian realities of life in the Ruhr area (e.g., Stier, Wäldernacht, Milch und Kohle) as well as Berlin (Flieh mein Freund, Hitze, Feuer brennt nicht), with an autobiographically colored focus on alienation, the attempt to escape these situations, and common solitude. Feuer brennt nicht (2009) is a moving portrait of an artist-writer torn between two women paying a high price for infidelity. It is now (2012) available in English translation as Fire doesn't burn, published by Seagull Books. Source: Wikipedia (en)
