Weaving Words

Oh, my stories! You announce your coming. In my dreams, I receive the first visitors. Some characters wake me up before dawn. They ask me gently, sometimes insistently, to make their whispers audible, to use a sheet of paper and turn them into physical beings.

I consult the spaces and gaps that arise between the scenes, the broken mirror by rearranging its shards again and again. So I get the reflection of another face, an expression that is still unknown to me.

My novel Intervalle (intervals) accompanies a man’s process of becoming silent, his perception and change in the state of silence. Which doors will be opened by his speechlessness and what sounds await us in the next room?

Work in progress. Concept and German writing samples available for publishers, agencies and translators on request.
