After finishing school, Paul Bühre stayed at a Kung Fu school in China, became a teacher in a rural school in India, before trying his hand in a Scottish turnery. Also this short, small, adventurous and tumultuous year was turned into a book, also at Ullstein: DAS JAHR NACH DEM ABI, An alle Leute die noch keinen Plan haben, oder denken sie hätten einen (The year after finishing school. To all the people who don’t have a clue or think they do), which was published in March 2019.
Bühre is studying in Berlin and looking forward to the summer break. Until then he enjoys drawing comic strips, reading graphic novels and books, streaming series, drinking coffee and eating Chinese food.
