Der ehrbare Kaufmann

Christoph Links erhält auf der Leipziger Buchmesse den Kurt Wolff Preis. Der Verleger ist Buchliebhaber und Geschäftsmann zu gleichen Teilen

Seit 2001 wird der Kurt Wolff Preis vergeben, alljährlich zur Leipziger Buchmesse. Im deutschen Literaturwesen gibt es ein fein austariertes, latent expansives Fördersystem. Kein Bundesland, kein Städtchen, kein Landstrich, der nicht Autoren mit Geld und guten Worten ehrt. Dank der Literatur erfahren auch die trostlosesten Orte der Republik einen Moment der Aufmerksamkeit.
