With new books written by Anne Petri, Arno Kamenich, HC Artmann and Carlos Ruiz Zafon.
In her novel “Country Place,” Anne Petrie shines in the dark corners of the white community. The African American author wrote the story of this small town in 1947, and it is now available in German for the first time.
Fans of Carlos Ruiz Zafon will recognize some of the characters from the novels in his flabby stories – and of course, the alleys of Barcelona.
In his most special book, Arno Kamensch tells of a “shadow over the village”; Unfortunately, it is not the best novel by the Swiss author.
We’re also talking about Oetinger-Verlag, who brought Pippi Longstocking to Germany and will turn 75 this year, and we’re celebrating the 100th birthday of poet HC Artmann with a new audiobook.
