This month, 4 out of the 6 books I read were in German; I read 3 male and 3 female authors, and books from 5 different countries. My favourite one of those? Rückwärtswalzer by Vea Kaiser! It gave me all the feelies, had a compelling story and lovable characters that I didn’t want to leave behind at the end of the book.
I also really enjoyed Ali und Nino and Der Gärtner war’s nicht. Sorry, nothing for you English-reading folks this time, although there is an English translation of Ali und Nino; and you should definitely ask your favourite publisher to get Vea Kaiser translated.
