- HOSTETTLER, Nadine
- Nadine Hostettler, born in Bern in 1959, studied ethnology and Spanish and worked as a correspondent for the newspaper Weltwoche in Mexico and Central America. Today she lives in Zurich and Paris as a freelance journalist working, for example, for Swiss television. Her first literary book publicaton was Fräulein Matter verliebt sich [2000, Miss Manners Falls in Love]. A central issue in her writing is the connection between losing one's job and losing sight of what life is about.
Die letzte Hoffnung (The Last Hope), printed under wrong title because of a typographical error, from Die letzte Hemmung, which is the correct title and plays on German word that means both "inhibition and supression," as well as in watchmaking, "escapement." (Frankfurt am Main: Schöffling & Co., 2003) : Vol. 8, No. 1
