In his autobiographically-influenced novel trilogy “Der Laden” Erwin Strittmatter regularly has his main character Esau Matt ride a bike. The hero of the novel cycles back and forth between Grodk, the name given to Spremberg in the book, and Bossdom (Bohsdorf). The round trip not only follows this route, but also leads to other places in Strittmatter’s works. With a little imagination they are easy to recognise. Graustein is Grauschteen, Schönheide is Scheenheede, and Bloischdorf is Bleischdorf.
