Synopsis

These five darkly comic vignettes are absurd modern fairy-tales, full of Chaplinesque slapstick and ominous imagery. Their tragicomic heroes must navigate adolescence and family life, poverty and humiliation, love and ambition - and perhaps even emerge with their dignity. From her break-out debut collection, these wildly original pieces demonstrate why Felicitas Hoppe is counted among the greatest living German writers.
