Muldental

Published by Diogenes as Muldental
Original Title: Muldental

By the writer of the Spiegel bestseller Love in Case of Emergency: 3 weeks at # 1 with over 100’000 copies sold.

Bestselling author Daniela Krien’s short story collection, including a previously unpublished story and a foreword by the writer.

A country collapsed – what happens to the people who once lived there?

Every radical change has its victims, even a peaceful revolution. Daniela Krien bears witness to the fate of a generation by telling stories of people whose lives lost their equilibrium at a historical turning point. She writes about deep despair and loss of orientation. Yet these miniature novels go beyond individual fates; they sketch out a portrait of the people of today.

A book about keeping one’s head above water despite it all, about going on despite it all, about surviving and coping.
