American crime writer Don Winslow, born in New York to a librarian and sailor, went on safari in Africa, and worked as a movie theater manager and private investigator on Times Square before becoming a world renowned novelist. While many of his books take place in California, his latest novel, "Germany," is set in the title country and traces a private detective's search for a missing woman. The quest leads him through Germany's dark side and into a world of drug, prostitution and human trafficking. For now, "Germany" is only available in German. DW: Your recent book is called "Germany." Why is that? Don Winslow: An American detective starts looking for a missing American woman and tracks her to Germany. That's the short answer to that question. The long answer is that I really like Germany. As a writer, when you fall in love with a place, you want to spend more time in it, either physically or mentally, and so you write about it. What do you like about Germany? Most of all, the … [Read more...] about Why Don Winslow loves Germany so much he set his latest book there
Each morning for several days, Chris Dercon found a fresh pile of feces in front of the door to his office. That's how Berlin greeted one of its newcomers. Dercon, the director of the Berlin Volksbühne theater, can take a lot, but he told me that when this happened, he just wanted to leave Berlin. Pure hate He describes it as pure hate. And he's right to name it the way it is. Finally! We should all be doing that. Where will this otherwise lead us? A wind of hostility has been blowing hard in Dercon's face ever since his appointment as Frank Castorf's successor. What is it all about?

Ethiopia's foreign ministry said the regional East African bloc IGAD that is helping to broker a deal "was committed to support in any way possible." Deutsche Welle has been talking to Jakkie Cilliers, director of South Africa's Institute for Security Studies, about the conflict and the attempts to resolve it. DW: What could be Ethiopia's role in negotiations between the two sides? Jakkie Cilliers: Well, Ethiopia is both the chair of the African Union as well as of IGAD, the Intergovernmental Authority on Development in the Horn of Africa, and has been playing a leading role in that capacity to bring the sides together. Of course, Addis Ababa is also the host to the African Union. At the moment, it seems that the African Union has requested that IGAD lead on the negotiations, which is in line with the principle of subsidiarity within the African Union. So Ethiopia's role will be to provide a neutral venue where the sides can speak. How could this instability in South Sudan affect … [Read more...] about South Sudan: “Only so much the international community can do”
That was not the voice of a loser. It was the voice of a winner. Forget the Republicans, take no notice of them, they have given you nothing. The calls of many of the Democrats fearing an electoral defeat sounded almost like pleas to their president. But President Barack Obama didn't have to be told twice. The fact that his party had just suffered a crushing defeat in the midterm elections and had to address a completely Republican-controlled Congress for the first time seemed to be anything but a challenge for the US president. A reinvigorated Barack Obama was bursting with power, self-confident, and aggressive during his address to Congress. Taking Republicans into consideration was the last thing on his mind. With great gusto, he issued almost half a dozen veto threats - from the Republicans fight against the Obamacare health care reforms, to demands for further sanctions against Iran. Obama's message was clear: The United States has wandered through the valley of tears and is on … [Read more...] about Opinion: So much for a ‘lame duck,’ Obama’s State of the Union
