The author and literary critic Elke Heidenreich has a lot to say and people like to read it: her bestseller “Aging” is the best-selling book of the year so far.

The author, literary critic and former television presenter Elke Heidenreich has landed the bestseller of the year so far in Germany with her book of essays about growing old. “For the first half of the year, ‘Aging’ is the most successful book,” Media Control announced. The profound work, published by Hanser Berlin Verlag, has touched many hearts since the beginning of the year, wrote Media Control, the creator of the book bestseller lists, on Instagram. In “Aging,” Heidenreich (81) illuminates the topic of growing old in a very personal and worldly-wise way.

“Aging” is so successful that the gap between it and the other bestsellers of the year so far is clear, Media Control in Baden-Baden said on Monday. Second place in the hardcover half-year winners is the Caspar David Friedrich book “Magic of Silence” by Florian Illies (S. Fischer Publishing House), and third place goes to the Carl Mørck thriller “Betrayed” by Jussi Adler-Olsen (dtv Verlagsgesellschaft).

The combative and opinionated bestseller queen Heidenreich lives in Cologne. She studied German and theater studies and worked in radio and television. She has received several awards for her work.
