Ulrike  Draesner - Lying Right


On life, careers and the unpredictability of happiness

Happiness always has been unpredictable, but now so are work and success. Emil is sitting in an unfinished palace in an icy cave; two colleagues have locked the door. Will they ever let him out again? Will he find his own way out? Pider, on the other hand, is standing in the sea of his own accord, five meters away from the beach, although he knows that the current here can be fatal. One small step is decisive.

Ulrike Draesner artistically and passionately tells of shuttle relationships, the longings of love, binge eating and money lust, of whole body exertion and the tricks of life. These are stories about couples and those wanting to be part of a couple, stories that in turn form couples and which have surprisingly conflicting opinions on the same subject – and are guaranteed not to become reconciled.

"Seldom has a love drama been told with such wit and elegance."
