WORLD: Do you know why the publisher turned away after so many years?
Maron: I can only guess. Of course I know that not all of my political statements about Islam and refugee policy are happy. In any case, with my book “Munin or Chaos in the Head”, which was published in 2018, there were all sorts of concerns and written advice from the publisher to protect myself from myself, as I was told. I found that rather strange.
WORLD: Above all, the publisher resented the fact that you published a volume of essays in a definitely new right edition called “Exil”, which is published by the Dresden bookseller Susanne Dagen. The far right publisher Götz Kubitschek sells them. Was that really necessary?
