The Writer

Heinz Berggruen studied literature in Germany and France. He was already writing for the 'Frankfurter Zeitung' when he had just turned 21. Later, he published his articles in the 'San Francisco Chronicle'. In the postwar years he wrote for ‚Heute’ an magazine edited by the Americans. Erich Kästner was one of his colleagues. In 1947 Rohwolt publishes his articles, titled ‚Angekreidet’. After his return to Berlin in the late 90s, Berggruen, again, wrote articles for the 'Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung', the former 'Frankfurter Zeitung'. 'Wagenbach' made a book series out of those articles, and in 1996, Berggruen's autobiography "Highway and Byways" was published.
