Manuela  Reichart  (Editor) - Handbag Love


A book that should be in every handbag!

"Anyone who has ever found a lost handbag and plucked up the courage to actually open it has stumbled into a hidden reality in which the contents begin to speak. Handbags are at the same time both snapshots and stories of whole lives: show me your handbag and I'll tell you who you are." Thus the description by Felicitas Hoppe of what goes on in the folds and traps of the treacherous inner lining of a handbag, behind all those buttons and zips, in the side and inside pockets.

Why handbags hold an entire world, how we can get dangerously lost in them and how they can betray us is the story told by Nora Bossong, Ulrike Draesner, Esther Kinsky, Judith Herrmann, Felicitas Hoppe, Judith Kuckart and many other well-known writers in this literary handbag book that should have a place in every Birkin bag, shoulder bag and clutch.

For readers of How to Be Parisian: Wherever you are and Women in Clothes.
