“I recognise myself in this completely different generation. “ Adriana Altaras
“Rebecca Martin describes her feelings and her world so sensitively and cleverly that her world becomes mine.” Eva Mattes
The story of a relationship – and a perception of women.
In her writing, Rebecca Martin is blunt, genuine and honest to herself
Something is amiss in Nora and Paul’s relationship. They have been together for years, and viewed objectively they should be a happy young couple. However, over time, the stereotypical roles they imposed upon themselves begin to crumble and crack. Not only are they increasingly faced with emotional problems, but they also seem to be losing their physical bond.
Slugs tells of the daily struggle of maintaining a relationship and of hidden wishes. Seemingly in passing, the story also deals with the demands you impose on your self-image as a young woman in the here and now. Occurring in a time when contradictions are unavoidable.
