Manchmal lüge ich und manchmal nicht

Nadja Spiegel

Love, injury, deception, uncertainty, and self-sacrifice: debut author Nadja Spiegel is hardly the first person to write about these things, but the way she has written about them is incomparable. Constructing virtuoso depictions of life in a style that lets them get right under your skin, Spiegel's precise, brittle, seemingly straightforward prose paints a vibrant picture of human compromise and cooperation with both humour and restraint. Bittersweet, made up of just a few simple strokes, these stories herald the arrival of an important new voice in European literature.
