With Love, Karl
These unforgettable stories grant insights into an impressive life, a writer’s work and aging, showing a very personal side of the ›Grande Dame‹ of German crime fiction – funny, affectionate, wicked.
The entire Ingrid Noll gamut in short-story form: her criminal wit, her warm-hearted life experience, her down-to-earth gift of observation. In this book, there’s a cherry on top: autobiographical writing, resonant and impressive. A letter to her deceased mother, the role of her father. How she fell in love with her first grandchild. The first years of her life in China. How she would like her last 24 hours to play out. What annoys her about getting old.
