Juli  Zeh - On Humans


"The first true Corona novel set in the midst of the Spring 2020 lockdown, subtly describing the social and very private consequences of the pandemic."

Süddeutsche Zeitung

"A conciliatory novel that does not conceal evil, but demonstrates that the world, viewed less ideologically, could be a little more humane."

Deutschlandfunk Kultur

"I would love to recommend this to everyone to read, to break down all these walls that somehow exist between the different groups in society."

rbb Kultur

"Juli Zeh has hit it big with On Humans. The novel is gripping and does not make it easy for itself or its audience."

rbb Inforadio

"A novel for our times, especially our Covid-times, in which much is clarified and intensified, including failure, loneliness and sanguine fits of hatred."


"A cool-headed and politically astute portrait of a village where life is precarious, beset by a dying infrastructure and right-wing attitudes."

Bayern 2

"A deft, imaginative and absorbing novel about a post-heroic protagonist, who is sweating from hard work rather than fear, caught between stoicism and struggle."

Kölner Stadtanzeiger

"A revealing novel about the state of our nation."

SWR Fernsehen Lesenswert, Denis Scheck
