As in die mond | Short Stories & Fiction Anthologies
Nicole Jaekel Strauss
A childless mother regards a Greek island, the bright colours grey to her eyes. A baker takes off his kaftan and Y-fronts, becomes Aisha and fixes his headscarf; at the home industry shop, two boys eye each other over the lemon meringues. A young saint dies on the pyre.
The connecting thread: What happened on the night of the fire? Interrelated tales form a disconcerting whole in this book of gut-wrenching short stories.
