Alice, Paperback Book

Alice Paperback



When someone very close to you dies your whole life changes.

Everything is different. Alice is the central figure in these five inter-connected narratives, which tell of her life at times of loss.

Suddenly it is no longer possible to say what the person looked like, how he spoke, cursed, smiled, how he lived his life.

Objects are left behind, books, letters, pictures and every now and again you think you can see them in a crowd. Judith Hermann tells of days of transition, of waiting, of holding on and letting go-and of how clear and dazzling such days can sometimes be.

Alice is a book of extraordinary power and great literary beauty from one of Europe's finest writersAlice is translated by Margot Bettauer Dembo.
