Matthias Brandt takes us back to yesterday

VA12

To be specific, to the 1970s in a small town somewhere in Germany. Morten Schumacher, nicknamed Motte, is 15 when he gets a call that changes everything: His best friend Bogi has suddenly become very ill. Soon afterwards, Jacqueline Schmiedebach rides past him on her bicycle. Between these two extremes – the possibility of death and the possibility of love – events come to a head and everything is turned upside down. Backbird, the debut novel from Matthias Brandt, tells of love, friendship, and the comedy and tragedy of life. Motte, Bogi and all the other characters in this exceptional novel will stay with you forever. Tonight’s guest: Jens Thomas. Host: Johanna Adorján
