Angelika  Waldis - Lots of Nice People
 
 
 

 

A glimpse behind the façade of a seemingly perfect family

The Drehers are a perfectly normal family, with two children, a house and a cat. They eat together, they talk to each other. But the new year brings changes with it: when Inge's latest project, the young refugee Tariq, moves into their basement, Heiner grumbles and hides away in their summer house, where he composes poems and angry letters. The two teenage sons Nick and Josch rebel in their own way, and discover the joy of forbidden things.

At the end of this perfectly ordinary year, nothing will ever be the same again in the Drehers' lives – except for the cat.

"Angelika Waldis writes with an imaginative playfulness and superb lightness of touch, without ever becoming superficial."

Jury commendation, ZKB Schiller Prize
