The brilliant second collection of stories from Germany's answer to Zadie Smith. Judith Hermann's first collection, 'The Summer House, Later', sold 250,000 hardbacks in Germany, and was shortlisted for both the IMPAC award and the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize.


Judith Hermann's first book, 'The Summer House, Later' was described as 'a book about a certain kind of young woman, trying to get a boyfriend, to get some fun out of life, but with a sense of melancholy and a sense of loneliness that seems to define a generation'.


Now in Hermann's second collection, 'Nothing but Ghosts', that generation has moved on, grown up perhaps, and the women have indeed found boyfriends but the relationships, described here with painstaking honesty, are all on the turn in some way and have passed their first flush of romantic love. We join many of these characters just as they have stopped communicating; the talking has stopped and the women, with their lives in stasis, have become watchful and disappointed and are starting to turn their gaze elsewhere...

Kunders vurdering

S
SM – 27.05.2009

– Novellene handler nettopp om fortid og nåtid, hvordan hovedpersonenes forhold til bipersonene har forandret seg. På godt og vondt. Temaet som er en gjenganger er lengsel, og reisen mot den, og vekk fra den. Hermann er er kort og konsis i språket sitt, men selv om rytmen er rolig er det en intensitet i personene. Særlig hovedpersonene. Kanskje nettopp på grunn av den lengselen de innehar. Historiene er lavmælte underveis og det er lite direkte handling, men når du har lest siste setningen er det akkurat som om hele historien trer frem med full styrke. Judith Hermann er en fantastisk forfatter, og kan absolutt anbefales!
