Helene Hegemann: Schlachtensee. Stories.
Literaturherbst opening of the Literaturhaus Köln with Helene Hegemann: Literature, film, opera, theater - Helene Hegemann's forms of expression are multifaceted and have won numerous awards. In 2010, she made her debut as an author with her novel Axolotl Roadkill; in her new book Schlachtensee. Stories (Kiepenheuer & Witsch), she explodes in fifteen episodes all the categories with which we try to understand the present. With great linguistic force, Helene Hegemann creates an artfully constructed psychogram of our society from narratives of damaged, powerful characters that is both disturbing and exhilarating.
