Jens  Petersen - The Housekeeper


He gets his novel humming right from the very first page and, with the help of a load of ludicrous, sometimes even slightly tasteless details and ideas, keeps the momentum up."

Der Spiegel

"[…] even after only a few pages of this artlessly artful prose it becomes apparent that the novelist writing here is able to combine his feeling for language and his talent for observation."


"'For me, Ada was a gift of the sort that makes you wonder why you hadn't been wanting to have it for ages.' This is a little like the way it is with Jens Petersen's wonderful debut novel The Housekeeper."

Süddeutsche Zeitung
