Otoo blasts established narrative boundaries.
[Otoo] finds a form that uses the possibilities of storytelling and the joy of experimentation to open up space for her characters.
A singular voice in contemporary German-language literature
A absolutely astonishing story
Otoo's play with perspectives is an ode to her narrative command over the inanimate world, which is condemned to a constant, powerless witnessing of world events
Set to be one of the best books of 2023 . . . Each narrative is connected by an underlying thread, with all of them exploring the misery and joy of womanhood, as well as themes of emancipation, resistance, and freedom.
Otoo's captivating use of language is the thread that ties these varying yet overlapping tales together . . . An impressive and highly original work, brimming over with energy.
Thrillingly, astonishingly original. You will not have read anything quite like this before.
