All of a sudden Annemut is returning to the hinterland. Because of Johanna. Johanna used to be her best friend.Who didn´t give a damn about the kids on the train or the wrinklies on the church benches. Who´s fascinated by saints and martyrs and who´s carrying tree frogs across the road every Sunday morning. But the hinterland is overhung with doom.


»Maybe the best text had been read a day too early: at the introduction of this year´s Klagenfurter Literaturkurs scholarship holders. The audience was all at one about it: with her wrathful poetry 27-year-old Stephanie Gleißner from Berlin is by no means meant to be just the warm-up act.«
