Die beiden Freundinnen und ihr Giftmord
Döblin’s legendary murder story
A young woman poisons her husband in conjunction with a friend. What made them do such a thing? What symbiosis is behind the murder? Alfred Döblin tells the haunting tale of one of the Weimar Republic’s most prominent crimes, transforming the true story of a poisoning into a radically open literary text that directs its scepticism not only at the judgements of the courts and the press, but also at its own narrative.
