Counterplay

Counterplay revolves around Maria-Antonia Pereira, a young Portuguese woman: Maria is in her early twenties, finished school in Lisbon and wants to leave a Portugal that seems, at the end of the seventies, only a few years after the Carnation Revolution, hardly attractive for young people. Salazar’s dictatorial corporative state is finally finished, but certainly the aftermath of decades of political standstill and isolation is still palpable. Portugal is underdeveloped, arch-Catholic, with a high illiteracy rate – and especially for women it seems that there’s not much to do in this country but marry and have children.

Grunewaldsee

On an olive-strewn seaside property in Spain and the dog urine-steeped beaches of the Grunewaldsee, bestselling author Hans-Ulrich Treichel weaves his two characters into a love story.

The Pope I knew

»I could also say that I speak English as well as I play the piano. And I do play the piano very well. Enviably well. English has always been my first foreign language and Italian only my third. So you can figure out how well I play the piano when I tell you that the Italian that I speak better than quite a number of Italians is only my third foreign language.«
