Michael Astner


Michael Astner's first book, About the Quality of Our Time, was published in Iaşi, Romania, in 1999. With poems in three languages (Romanian, German, and Saxon - the old form of German still spoken in the Transylvanian German communities settled by invitation to secure the passes against marauding tribes some 800 years ago), the book reflects Astner's Saxon background. Born in 1961 in Apoldu de Sus near Sibiu, Astner has also translated fiction into German and is the editor of the book Kulturlandschaft Bukowina.
