Doris  Anselm - and at That Moment My Love Gets Ready for Counterattack


A new confident voice in German literature

What are the triggers for changes in our lives? A message from a long forgotten friend, one insult or humiliation too many, an absurd passion that suddenly has to be pursued.

In Doris Anselm's stories we encounter careerists and losers, charismatic personalities and individuals on the wrong track. Hence a piece of jewellery changes hands, impersonally and yet very symbolically. A girl becomes an adult and her teacher a little more childish. At the same time many apparently important aspects are elegantly left undecided in order to open the eye for what is essential. Past events always have an influence right up into an intensively experienced present, herald of future prospects that frequently seem to be ludicrous. In spite of all the benevolence, the stories contain a threatening undertone.

Doris Anselm's debut captivates with its unwavering and clear-sighted observations, linguistic maturity and variety.

“Doris Anselm is a discovery!”

Berliner Zeitung
