“Recognizing oneself in others is an exercise that puts marvel back into our daily lives.” (Barbara Frischmuth)
Barbara Frischmuth is a master of stylistic abundance: full of compassion she takes a sometimes down to earth, sometimes humorously-grotesque look at the trials and tribulations of human interaction. Frischmuth tells of hellos and good-byes. From the story of a lovesick young archeologist who goes into hiding at her sister’s house and lives through a cathartic experience to a substitute fight between a grandmother and her granddaughter over a misplaced nail file.
With her playful narration Frischmuth gives us glimpses of a simple truth: Time and again, reality is an experiment.
