Erwin Riess

Erwin Riess, born in 1957, was confined to a wheelchair after a spinar tumor, and feels this has enabled him to write - often satirically, as reflected in his play Glimpses of a Cripple or He Who Sits in a Wheelchair Looks Under the Skirts of Reality. Novelist and essayist as well as playwright, since 1994 he has also been an activist for disabled issues.
