"You can hate the vanished country and miss it at the same time when you read the book," writes Alexander Osang in his very personal afterword to the new edition of Marion Brasch's successful family novel.

It is the "grand narrative of a vanished world" called the GDR. Marion Brasch's father was the GDR's deputy minister of culture, and the brothers, including Thomas Brasch, became famous as writers, playwrights and actors. With surprising ease, the "little sister" recounts the dramatic events in her family - success, revolt, loss of the three brothers - and follows their path through adventure and turmoil to their own freedom.

An event by Literatur LIVE in cooperation with S. Fischer Verlag and the Thalia bookstore.
