Die Liebe im Ernstfall

Die Liebe im Ernstfall

Sie heißen Paula, Judith, Brida, Malika und Jorinde. Sie kennen sich, weil das Schicksal ihre Lebenslinien überkreuzte. Als Kinder und Jugendliche erlebten sie den Fall der Mauer, und wo vorher Grenzen und Beschränkungen waren, ist nun die Freiheit. Doch Freiheit, müssen sie erkennen, ist nur eine andere Form von Zwang: der Zwang zu wählen. Fünf Frauen, die das Leben aus dem Vollen schöpfen. Fünf Frauen, die das Leben beugt, aber keinesfalls bricht.

Daniela Krien, geboren 1975 in Neu-Kaliß, studierte Kulturwissenschaften und Kommunikations- und Medienwissenschaften in Leipzig. Seit 2010 ist sie freie Autorin, 2011 erschien ihr Roman >Irgendwann werden wir uns alles erzählen<, der in 14 Sprachen übersetzt wurde. Ihr 2014 veröffentlichter Erzählband >Muldental< wurde 2015 mit dem Nicolaus-Born-Debütpreis ausgezeichnet. Daniela Krien lebt mit zwei Töchtern in Leipzig.

    3.5 stars. You could say that all of the women in this book are having a kind of midlife crisis, one unique to women, that doesn't come with a new sportscar or trading in for much-younger partner. The...

    A solid book with a good structure that still left me wishing it had done a bit more. Funny how blurbs often give you a totally different idea of story than how it actually turns out. Too much focus o...
