Anna Magdalena  Bössen - Germany. A roving fairy tale


On the road through an unknown home country – with Goethe and Heine on board

Anna Magdalena Bössen takes to the road with some poems. The trained reciter spent a year cycling through Germany and in return for board and lodgings recited poems. In the process she got to know the country and its people in a way that was utterly unique. In her yellow bag she had a literature programme, and in her mind several big questions: Who is Germany? Does happiness live in the country or in town? And can that feeling of 'home' be found in any particular place or only in one's inner self?

This is a book that tells of the freedom of being out and about and captures this country Germany and its people in a way that is as vivid as it is touching. A book packed with encounters and discoveries, full of surprises and experiences – a roving fairy tale!
