Kenton Turk: The Great Read-Out #1

The Great Heisenberg begins its series of “Great Read-Outs” with Kenton Turk, whose stories prove at turns tantalizing, tortured, touching and twisted. Here, seemingly average folks reveal extraordinary features, brains are turned inside out to reveal the inner workings, and some get what they deserve while others don’t. Or maybe do, depending on your take on things.

A Greek holiday ends in a hopeless and bizarre quest, a Siberian babushka is revealed to have a sinister core, a lacklustre guesthouse maid between the Wars turns out to be a touch too curious, a man cannot curb a voracious appetite that goes beyond food, what seems to be a baby is the subject of furtive gossipy speculation, and more. These stories will take you out there – but possibly not bring you back.

A cool thing to do. Sit back, sip a cognac or a coffee, a brandy or a beer, and let yourself get seduced into left field. The Great Heisenberg, Schillerpromenade 11, Neukölln (U-Boddinstr. or
U-Leinestr., also Bus 104 +167, stop: Herrfuhrtstr.). Thursday, August 30 at 8:00 pm,
in English.
