Leigh. René. Emily. Sara. They are lovers, desirers, journeying and meeting one another in the Californian desert, the North German lake country, dark Finnish woods, and the cold winds of Manhattan. The loss of René’s first love and the disappearance of Emily start off a dance of relationships in which conventional ideas of love gradually dissolve. Sara. Ute. Catt. The very oscillation between countries and genders kindles a fascination which is revealed in unfamiliar sensualities and sexualities. With passion and insight, Antje Rávic Strubel tells of wild curiosity, restlessness, new beginnings, and desire and longing in a way that has not been seen in German literature for quite some time.
Antje Rávic Strubel takes us on a journey to the centre of the human heart.
