Biography

Alfred Richard Meyer was a German writer (author of over 100 books) and publisher. He also acted as an emcee in the Cabaret Schall und Rauch (Smoke and Mirrors) under his pseudonym “Munkepunke”. He was also a connoisseur on everything readable, dineable and drinkable. He published and promoted some early expressionistic authors (including Hans Carossa, Gottfried Benn, Rudolf Leonhard, Else Lasker-Schüler and Joachim Ringelnatz). In 1933, he vowed loyalty to Adolf Hitler and in 1937 joined the Nazi Party. Nevertheless he was trying to help vulnerable writers, but his publisher was closed in 1939 and his books were referred to as ineligible, and after World War II, he was forgotten.
