Klaus Cäsar



Klaus Cäsar Zehrer was born in Schwabach (near Nuremberg) in 1969. His father, the president of a football club, wanted to turn him into the greatest footballer of all times. When he was six, Klaus Cäser saw the first book of his life and was disappointed that it did not roll when he would kick it. A brain defect, caused by too much practicing headers with a medicine ball, cut his football career short. He started to write poems instead. Now that he lives as a freelance author, poet, critic, translator, editor and university teacher in Berlin and has published several books, among them (together with Robert Gernhardt) the best-selling anthology of German humorous poetry "Hell und Schnell" (2004), there is just one goal: to become, finally, the greatest football player of all times.
