Der Literarische Salon mit Deniz Ohde

Der Vorverkauf startet in Kürze.

Finding one's own language is probably the most difficult thing for writers. Because they don't find it in any other book, they don't learn it at any writing school, they have their own language somewhere within themselves or they don't have it. That's why some novels today are so interchangeable, as different as their themes are. And that's why Deniz Ohde's debut is an event from the very first sentence. Exclusion, educational injustice, patriarchy, migration, the modern precariat - you've read about them so often, and then you read "Scattered Light" and it's as if it's never been told before, so subtle, so differentiated, illuminated to the farthest corners of experience, and truthful, as only great literature can manage.
