SUSANNE HEINRICH
IN DEN FARBEN DER NACHT/ IN THE COLOURS OF NIGHT
narration, approx. 220 pages

So very hungry for experience and at the same time full of knowledge débuts rarely appear: In twelve concentrated stories Susanne Heinrich’s narrators go on a reconnaissance expedition to the dark sides of life – they are young, hard-boiled, but still sensitive. They feel to be desired and seek orientation in inadequate possibilities. They are full of desires and anxieties, they dream of nearness and console themselves with the wrong one. But love does not turn up.

Susanne Heinrich paints the picture of the dark sides of reality in blinding bright colours. Her writing is a remarkable combination of toughness and poetry: Merciless, self-confident and irritating she makes her figures wander around. During a holiday or in bed, at a concert or during breakfast on the morning after – one always waits for an explosion, but the narrations remain in a captivating tension.

“I imagine I am happy.” – In the world Susanne Heinrich creates this wish remains unanswered.
