The Ting (Das Ting) is the debut novel from one of the most exciting young talents on the German literary scene, Artur Dziuk.

The Keeper, now available on Amazon Prime Video, tells the incredible true story of Bert Trautmann, a German soldier and prisoner of war who, against a backdrop of British post-war protest and prejudice, becomes Manchester City's goalkeeper, and in doing so becomes a footballing icon.
