Angelika  Overath - She Turns Around


"One of the most independent voices of German-language literature." taz

It is the classic case but nevertheless a shock: her husband is having an affair with a young colleague! And Anna Michaelis leaves. She packs some clothes and takes the next-best flight, to Edinburgh. Her path takes her to the National Gallery of Scotland. A woman shown from behind in one of the Gauguin paintings starts to speak.

It is the beginning of a game. Anna travels on. She stands before pictures all over the world and discovers accomplices who talk of longing, normal married life, love. During her immersion in these works of art, Anna looks back at her own marriage and finds the courage for a new view of herself.

"A clever novel about new beginnings. The author never lets herself be seduced by esotericism or sentimentality."

Berner Zeitung
