Karlheinz Paulsen

Biography

Karlheinz Paulsen is the nom de plume of an expert on the expat scene found on Margarita Island who publishes partially fictitious biographies of the characters he meets. His inspiration to put pen to paper came after several encounters with these colorful characters ended with him holding the short end of the stick, which led him to believe that newbies should be offered a realistic impression of what their fellow islanders are capable of. Sometimes, in the interest of storytelling, it proved necessary to add second-hand information, but care was taken in such cases to ensure that the sources were reliable. Karlheinz Paulsen is a dyed-in-the-wool ‘Margariteño’, constantly on the lookout for the marooned and the shipwrecked of Europe, on the ready to chronicle their follies.

La serie “La isla de los fracasados” narra de forma amena biografías breves (en parte ficticias) de emigrantes europeos que han encontrado en la Isla Margarita del Caribe un hogar y que tienen una imagen algo dudosa. En “El Rufián Ambulante”, se cuenta la vida de uno de esos personajes fracasados, cuya propensión al fraude tiene un matiz casi cómico, o al menos grotesco.

Die Reihe „Die Insel der Gestrandeten“ erzählt in unterhaltsamer Weise (teilw. fiktive) Kurzbiographien europäischer Auswanderer, die auf der karibischen Insel Margarita eine Heimat gefunden und zu zweifelhaftem Ansehen gelangt sind. „Der Strizzi“ beschreibt einen Gestrandeten, dessen betrügerischer Charakter auf eine seltsame Art nahezu komisch wirkt, zumindest jedoch grotesk.

The series “The Island of the Marooned” offers entertaining, partially fictitious biographical portraits of European expats that have found a refuge on the Caribbean Island of Margarita where some have come to enjoy a rather dubious reputation. “The Strizzi” lampoons the fraudulent character traits of this marooned, whose acts of felony are sometimes grotesquely humorous.
