Boy with a Black Rooster

Published by Diogenes as Junge mit schwarzem Hahn
Original Title: Junge mit schwarzem Hahn

Eleven-year-old Martin has nothing but the shirt on his back, and a black rooster which is both a protector and a friend. The villagers steer clear of the boy, finding him strange; far too smart and kind. They would rather mistreat him than acknowledge his talents. When Martin meets a travelling painter and seizes the chance to leave the village with him, he is led into a terrible world which, thanks to his compassion and understanding, he is able to resist, becoming a saviour for those even more innocent than he is.

»Stefanie vor Schulte’s novel demonstrates that it takes the wisdom of a child to understand cruelty.«

Hannah Küppers / Sächsische Zeitung, Dresden

»This enigmatic plot, studded with symbols, and vor Schulte’s concise, distinctive narrative style will be remembered for a long time.«

Ulrike Frenkel / Münchner Merkur, Munich

»An inspired debut from Stefanie vor Schulte!«

Jana Felgenhauer / Barbara, Hamburg

»A gruesomely beautiful fairy tale for grown-ups.«

Jan Ehlert / NDR Podcast, Hamburg

»A great rhythm, beautiful sentences, atmosphere: a joyful cultural experience.«

Thomas Andre / Hamburger Abendblatt, Hamburg

»Boy with a Black Rooster is gripping, uncanny, a look into the human abyss. And yet, there is magic in this child.«

Peter Helling / NDR Kultur, Hamburg

»Stefanie vor Schulte's novel is full of poetic power and with a language characterized by images.«

HR Kultur, Frankfurt

»This appears light as a feather, yet elaborately crafted all the same.«

Rose-Maria Gropp / Laudatory speech for the ›Mara Cassens Prize‹

»Stefanie vor Schulte’s debut novel, Boy with Black Rooster, is an engrossing and enchanting fairy tale for adults, offering readers some ideal (post-) pandemic escapism.«

New Books in German, London

»Halfway between macabre tale and surrealist epic, Boy with a Black Rooster, with its many ambiguities, is as reminiscent of Hieronymus Bosch as it is of Giambattista Basile's Tale of Tales (adapted for the cinema by Matteo Garrone).«

Camille Thomine / Lire - magazine littéraire, Paris

»A debut that is both admirable and truly unique.«
