Christoph Ransmayr, b. 1954, is an Austrian writer. After spending many years in Ireland and on travels, he now lives again in Vienna. He has won numerous literary awards for his books that were translated into more than thirty languages. Recently published: Der Fallmeister. Eine kurze Geschichte vom Töten, 2021
Ransmayr recounts expeditions, adventures, journeys and unheard-of events to uncover in them not the unique, but the most general aspect: that nothing is permanent and certainly nothing lasts for ever.
