Munin oder Chaos im Kopf
224 Pages, gebunden
Turmoil in a small street reveals the madness of the world
Mina Wolf, journalist and occasional songwriter, sacrifices her summer to write an essay for a small town’s commemorative publication about the Thirty Years’ War. A crazy neighbour, who sings loudly from morning till night every day on her balcony, forces her to work at night. The small, narrow street is up in arms and Mina’s mind is overrun with thoughts of the Thirty Years’ War, daily news of war and terror and the growing aggression in the neighbourhood. When a crow, which she names Munin, also enters her nightly solitude and starts talking to her about God and the world, Mina’s mind chaos is complete. In this turbulent novel, Monika Maron designs an atmospheric portrait of our time in a provoking and humorous manner.
