Abbas Khider "Ohrfeige"
After jumping out of a van, Karim Mensy thinks he is in France. At least, that was what he paid for when fleeing from Iraq – but actually he’s landed in the middle of nowhere in Bavaria. After a three-year wait in asylum homes and a battle with red tape, his application is rejected and he needs a new people smuggler. Abbas Khider, born in Bagdad in 1973, has been living in Germany since he fled his country in 2000. He has won many prizes, and this, his forth novel, perfectly captures our present world.
