A love story between deepest grief and greatest happiness.
Karl is not yet thirty but has already made a name for himself as an artist in Berlin. He is the son of August and Ada Stiegenhauer, the most glamorous couple of the German art scene. But there was no room for a child in his parents’ symbiotic relationship, so he was sent away to boarding school. Now his father committed suicide, and his mother has a brain tumour. In Karl’s cosmos everything begins to sway, and suddenly comes to a standstill.
The only constant is a little girl, Tanja, who entices him back to life with her childlike carefreeness. And here begins a story as wild as a thunderstorm, as gentle as a breeze.
A debut guaranteed to make a splash!
