Petra  Morsbach - Palace of Justice


A major social novel about judiciary and justice

Thirza Zorniger is the offspring of a disastrous actor marriage and wants to make sure justice is done. She becomes a judge at the Palace of Justice in Munich. Here, however, reality is different from theory: a highly complex justice machinery has to handle the whole range of what life has to offer, sometimes getting hiccups in the process. And even with the judges a certain similarity to life in a chaotic family cannot be denied.

Palace of Justice is a novel about the longing for justice; about agitated, cynical, impertinent, deluded, crazy, confused and desperate people looking for justice; not to mention overworked, more or less ruthless, quirky, wise, ossified and passionate judges.

Petra Morsbach writes about justice and those meant to create it – realistic and precise, laconic and opulent, funny and blunt.

"One of the most astonishing experiments of recent German literary history […] This novel is a piece of art."
