Poet Max Sessner (born in 1959 in Fürth) is a bookseller who lived for many years in Nuremberg, Würzburg and Munich. Since 2008 he has worked in the Augsburg City Library.
His texts frequently have the appearance on the page of compact, stele-like blocks. In them he deals with simple everyday things. He is an observer of reality who tracks down everything that lies behind things, movements and sentences. His poems have been published in several books as well as in various magazines and in the Jahrbuch der Lyrik anthology.
