Dimension2: Contemporary German-Language Literature

HOPPE, Felicitas
Felicitas Hoppe, born in Hameln in 1960, now lives in Berlin. After pursuing her studies in Germany, Italy, and the United States, she worked both in theater and as a jornalist. After her literary debut with a collection of short stories, Picknick der Friseure [The Hairdressers' Picnic], she published her first novel, in which a knight, a freelancer, and a dog travel halfway around the world in search of a third man, the explorer Doctor Stoliczka, with whom they are caught up in a strange affair and whose trail goes dark somewhere in India. Shortly before Christmas, the unequal partners separate in the burning heat of an unknown crossroads. This is the point where the exceprt in Volume 7, Number 1 begins.

Paradiese, Übersee (Knights and Freelancers) from Paradiese, Übersee (Reinbek bei Hamburg: Rowohlt Verlag, 2003): Vol. 7, No. 1
