My brother Marco

sold out

Literaturhaus Basel

With musical accompaniment by Ariane Ruffino

Ten years after the death of his brother Marco, Ueli Mäder´s new book examines the questions that arose from the initial horror at such a miserable end. Marco was not just a national league handball player; he was well-read, sensitive, independent and a deeply committed and hopeful man. How could a life so rich in possibilities end so destructively in alcohol? What kind of life was it? In what era? What effect did the social circumstances of his time, which often caused him to suffer, have on his life? A search for personal and social clues.
