The mystical Bavarian Hiasl, the women’s rights activist Carry Brachvogel, the surprisingly wide range of interests pursued by Jean Paul, the rapping Nina "Fiva" Sonnenberg – these are only a small number of examples of the many historical and contemporary, well-known and almost forgotten, real and fictitious Bavarian characters who can be encountered in the 17 essays contained in this book.

The texts of the volume are a selection of posts and contributions originally published by the Literaturportal Bayern.
