ROHSTOFF (RAW MATERIAL) is the autobiography of Jörg Fauser, the cult author of the Beatnik Generation. Jörg Fauser was an observer of his life and his time: junkie in Istanbul, 1968 communard in Berlin, then squatter in Frankfurt. Finally night watchman and a regular guest in a corner pub in Frankfurt. The autobiographical testimony, at the center of which is Fauser's alter ego Harry Gelb, is a drastic description of his life, a fast-paced contemporary document of the sixties and seventies - and the story of one who set out to become a writer.
