Takis Würger studied Human, Social, and Political Science at St. John’s College, Cambridge before dropping out. He boxed for the university, broke two ribs and a finger, was awarded a Blue, dined with the Adonians and joined the Pitt Club and a drinking society that shall not be named.

Würger’s work as a reporter for the German news magazine Der Spiegel has taken him to Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq and Ukraine. The Club, which has become a runaway bestseller in Germany, is his first novel.



A young man goes to Berlin in 1942. At a school for the arts, he meets a woman. They fall in love. One morning she knocks on his door, hurt, and says, “I didn’t tell you the truth.”

Stella is out in Germany and Italy and will be released in 2020 in the US. More information to follow soon.
