Elvira Sastre: The Days Without You (Guest country Spain IV)
Elvira Sastre is poet and poetry slammer, who is very well-known in Spain, works with many artists and regularly fills theatres and concert halls with her events in Spain. Her first novel, Die Tage ohne dich (Thiele Verlag) is about the difficult love of art lecturer Gael for the headstrong Marta, who sits as a model for his students. With both narrative strands, the author succeeds in conveying the scarred wounds from the Civil War in a vividly portrayed present.
Reading in German and Spanish.
