Jo  Lendle - What We Call Love


"In Jo Lendle’s What We Call Love, readers should be prepared to encounter preternatural occurrences. If they are open to this, the magic of this surreal story will captivate … Anything but usual."


"Lendle tells of these seemingly so banal entanglements and developments with a wonderfully light irony, open-heartedly and without even the slightest touch of any oppressive morality that castigates the seeming unruliness of erotic aberrations."

Nürnberger Nachrichten

"The ending of this entertaining novel is left hanging – confusing and enchanting at the same time."

Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung

"Therefore its creator, the future Hanser publisher Jo Lendle, must reach into the bag of tricks of literature. He does this with melancholy wit, linguistic finesse, and narrative daring – a book to fall in love with (even if you already have one)."

Westfälische Rundschau

"Lendle provides us with an airy-light love novel that plays with the possibilities of literature."


"How Lambert in his struggles for love overcomes himself and who or what carries off the victory – Jo Lendle tells with great wordplay and numerous allusions that are a delight to decode. After reading, one is certain of one thing: immortality is feasible – with ten stair steps a minute."

Bayerischer Rundfunk B5
