Bestseller No. 1 in Germany 2021Dora is living the millennial dream of the pandemic: she has moved to the country with her dog to escape confinement and perhaps find a way out of the alienations of the big city. But the small town of Bracken is not as idyllic as she thought. Her plot is not suitable for cultivation, the transport system does not work and, furthermore, behind the wall of her garden, a neighbor peeks out who, with his shaved head and far-right slogans, seems to fit all the stereotypes. What is Dora looking for in the middle of nowhere? Perhaps a radical change in her life, or distance from Robert, her boyfriend, increasingly oblivious to her in her obstinate activism. As she reflects on her motives and desires, things happen that she couldn't have foreseen: people who don't fit any mold, opinions that drastically challenge her ideas, and events of hers that revolutionize her inner life.In this German best seller, Juli Zeh manages to take an X-ray of our times. A complex and polarized world that yearns for genuine connections, and that forces us to face our weaknesses and fears, all those contradictions that come to light when we dare to be humans.
