Kasper Mauser. Cowardice Vis-à-vis A Friend

Kleist Prize 2013
Günter Grass Prize – From Authors to Authors, 2017

The novella “Kasper Mauser. Die Feigheit vor dem Freund” is a grotesque of deracination in three voices: Rosa (who lives in the East) and Anna (living in the West after having lived in the East) and Amica, who switches from East to West, trying in vain to defend a secret identity under the name Kasper Mauser.
