Ingo Schulze

Biography

Ingo Schulze was born in Dresden in 1962. His parents divorced when he was one year old and he grew up with his mother, a doctor. He started writing in his teens but only wrote his first worthwhile (in his view) story while doing his national service. At university he studied classics, German and art history but found little time for writing. After university his first writing was small pieces for local theatres, not least because they were less subject to censorship. However, in 1989 he founded a newspaper in the town of Alternburg which he ran for four years before going to St. Petersburg to help found a similar paper. When he returned to Germany, unification was well under way and he decided to return to writing, publishing 33 Augenblicke des Glücks (33 Moments of Happiness) in 1995. He started writing his next work, Simple Storys (Simple Stories), while in New York and it had considerable success in Germany on publication.
