About

Be it in her award-winning novels, reportages or essays – Nora Bossong’s texts unfailingly take us straight into the painfully relevant problems areas of our time. Where others make snap judgement or withdraw into themselves, she looks closely, listens with compassion and asks questions: about colonial guilt and global justice, about the West’s claims to power and the nature of evil.

With analytical astuteness and verbal power, she exposes mistaken idealisation and populist humbug, warns of letting history sink into oblivion and of the growing weariness of democracy. She travels to the Yellow Vests protests in Paris, to the opponents of Germany’s coal phase-out in Jänschwalde, to the commemoration events on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the genocide in Rwanda and to the trial against suspected war criminals in The Hague – and she shows that reconciliation cannot be ordered but that our efforts in its service may never ease.
