Robert Pimm readings in Berlin – and Vienna

In February, before Coronavirus, I did three readings.  Two were in Berlin, from my Berlin thriller Blood Summit.  The other was in Vienna, from my feminist black comedy Seven Hotel Stories.  

The first of the three February readings included a Reichstag tour and was organised by film-maker Sibylle Trost.

At the summit of the Reichstag’s spectacular dome I described how, in Blood Summit, the President of the United States and other world leaders are seized by terrorists as they attend a summit in the building.

It is hard to imagine a more spectacular setting for a thriller

About 20 people came on the 21 February tour.

We held the reading courtesy of Berlin firm Mazars in their stunning office overlooking the Reichstag.

The second Berlin reading, on 22 February, was hosted by Christiane Landgrebe and Ari Grosskopf.  Christiane and Ari hold regular salons and were kind enough to invite me to read.  It was a beautiful, relaxed evening.

Shortly before the Berlin readings I was able to tour the non-public areas of the Reichstag building, including the tunnels which play a crucial role in Blood Summit.

On 13 February, the famous Vienna bookshop Shakespeare & Co invited me to read from my book Seven Hotel Stories.  The session was so packed that at the signing afterwards, I ran out of copies of the book.

I recommend Shakespeare & Co, which has been closed since 16 March because of Coronavirus.  Please support them by buying their books when they reopen.
