Marco Göllner was born in 1971 in Herford (Prussia!) because his father got lost driving the car. But he grew up in Bad Salzufflen, in a suburb called Aspe. This is where he spent the first years of his life, with his grandmother, Martha. Today he lives in the Teutoburg Forest and in Berlin, and has become a superstar in the audiobook segment as a director and author. He first became known to a wider audience through the “Fest & Flauschig” podcast by Jan Böhmermann and Olli Schulz.
MY GRAN, THE SUPERHERO
Marco Göllner grew up with his grandmother, a member of the pinafore-wearing old guard. There was one thing Marco could be sure of: Granny had everything and everyone under control. Göllner’s deliciously laconic prose captures many humorous episodes of his formative years in the German provinces.
This book takes us back to Marco Göllner’s childhood and introduces us to a woman who smelled of cheap perfume, made the world’s best potato fritters and whose pinafore seemed to lend her superpowers worthy of any comic book superhero.
