Reading with Marlen Hobrack

Marlen Hobrack comes to the Buchbox in Kastanienallee (Prenzlauer Berg) and will read from her novel "Schrödinger's Grrrl". The evening will be moderated by Alyssa Fenner.

In her debut novel, Marlen Hobrack tells the story of Mara Wolf - a school dropout, in her early twenties, depressed, unemployed in Dresden. She fills her everyday life with Instagram, dating and online shopping.

"Schrödinger's Grrrl" is a contemporary novel of development, an impostor-against-will study, a story about a young woman who cannot find a place in society because she does not even believe she can claim one. But there are the three heroines - her mother, her best friend Charis and her case worker Ms Kramer at the employment agency - who don't let her down.

Marlen Hobrack was born in 1986 in Bautzen and lives in Leipzig. She studied literature, culture and media studies and then worked for a management consultancy. Since 2016, she has been writing full-time for various newspapers and magazines.
