Die Dunkelheit zwischen den Sternen
304 Pages, gebunden
Where can home be found between hope and despair? No one can write about this like Benjamin Lebert.
Kathmandu in April 2015, nine days before the massive earthquake. Shakti, Achanda and Tarun are living in a children’s home that feels like a home of sorts to them. They dream of relatives, a foster family, and a motorcycle, and get a glimpse of happiness. Their parents had sold them into indentured servitude and prostitution, but one day, they managed to escape. They’re led to believe that they’ll now be okay, but, of course, they know better. They’re alive, they don’t trust anyone, they’re searching for a path through the darkness, and aren’t aware of how little time they still have. With unflinching candour and full of hope, Lebert writes about a world that is usually inaccessible to us.
