Terézia  Mora - Love Among Aliens


Self-willed dreamers on the search for earthly happiness

A trip to the seaside is meant to bring a young couple together. A night porter feels secretly attracted to his half-sister. A university lecturer runs away from a broken relationship and from the conflict with himself. A Japanese professor falls in love with a goddess.

In Love Among Aliens Terézia Mora skilfully writes about people who lose themselves but don't give up; who are lost but continue to hope. In these ten stories we meet women and men who are strangely at odds with themselves but want to find the way to each other; loners who won't admit their own feelings; dreamers who stubbornly stick to their ideals.

With precise soberness, Mora has traced feelings for which there seems to be no outlet and examined the sometimes tragicomical longing for friendship, love and happiness.

Press on The Monster

"As intelligent as it is endearing, as natural as it is self-willed, glisteningly clear-sighted and alive with poetry." FAZ

"Mora's use of language is unusual and thrilling to read: her sentences develop a gravitational pull that is hard to resist."
