Ursula Krechel: Geisterbahn
In her new novel, Ursula Krechel is continuing her great narrative project on recent German history. After Shanghai fern von wo and the German Book Award-winning novel Landgericht, Geisterbahn tells the story of a German Sinti family.
Through the murderous policies of the Nazi regime, the Dorns have lost most of their family, their livelihood and any trust in neighbours and institutions. Now a new period is beginning and the Dorns have to find their place in German post-war society.
