Shadows Cast

Published by Diogenes as Wurfschatten
Original Title: Wurfschatten

The debut novel by the author of the best- selling novel Jump is an unusual love story that proudly stands up to fear.

Ada is a talented young actress but her life is ruled by anxieties. So much so that she can only find peace through complex rituals and barely leaves her flat.
Owing months of rent, her landlord springs his grandson Juri on her as a flatmate. For Ada, the young man is an imposition, an invasion – or is he perhaps the best thing could happen to her?

Shortlisted for the 2014 ›aspekte Prize‹.
