»Klarkommen« – reading
"I really wanted to waste my youth, but not like that." - "Klarkommen" tells the story of Mounia, Leon and the narrator himself, who, after graduating from high school, venture into the big city together and quickly realize that the books, Films, series and songs have lied: the party is either already over or never started.
Nobody fucks, almost everyone is afraid of drugs, and only others are cool. Together and individually, they struggle with their own embarrassing retardation and the seemingly impossible task of flourishing quickly before civilization ends itself. The big question that concerns them all is: Where is my place in life and how do I find it? And if nothing else, they need each other to figure it out.
Ilona Hartmann's new book touches you with fine observations and intense moments that powerfully and truthfully tell of life in all its depths, heights and shades of gray.
