Tough and brave and sad and beautiful - With Anika Decker and Katja Riemann on the other side


She is a successful screenwriter (“Rabbit Without Ears”) and director (“Traumfrauen”). Now, Anika Decker makes her debut as a novelist. Wir von der anderen Seite [“We, the Ones from the Other Side”] is a story about illness and recovery, family and friendship, love and self-confidence. And it is a great book, which has garnered euphoric praise: “Anika Decker has the right perspective! Harshly comical, affectionately biting, and so melancholy it will bring you to tears, her book is a loving tribute to this strange and unpredictable creature: the human being” (Iris Berben). “A magnificent book. Touching and funny, ridiculous and incredibly sad” (Sibylle Berg). “Tough and brave and sad and beautiful” (Helene Hegemann). “Whoa. And wow. And whoa. And hahahaha. And ouch. And oh man, oh man, oh man. Amazing book” (Palina Rojinski). Katja Riemann will read from the work and says: “What a joy it was to read this book – I laughed out loud and cried onto the pages”. Host: Jörg Thadeusz
