Christiane  Neudecker - A Sound in the Silence


He is a sound designer in the automotive industry and responsible for the light click of the steering wheel lock, for the full-bodied vibrato of metal springs snapping back and the pulsating tick of the indicator. He has to travel to Dubai for the development of a prototype – a career challenge as they call it, but more particularly a personal one. For no sooner has he become accustomed to the petty rituals of his colleagues and to the foreign, male-dominated society, than his wife and children follow ...

In this, Neudecker's literary debut, the noise of the everyday world meets oases and abysses of silence – a clash which gives rise to an impressive, new and unusually worldly voice in German literature.
