Nicoletta Verna – "Der Wert der Gefühle"
The author in conversation with Anna Vollmer about her current novel.
Bianca is only seven years old when she loses her sister in a tragic event. On that unlucky day, her existence is shattered. But over time she seems to come to terms with this stroke of fate. She lives with Carlo, a heart surgeon, in a chic penthouse flat in the centre of Rome. Even the fact that her mother tries to take her own life at regular intervals has become a habit for Bianca. But behind the façade of a normal life, she has developed compulsive acts to deal with her trauma. A perfidious plan matures inside her, which she unswervingly pursues. An event presented by the Italian Cultural Institutes in Berlin and Cologne.
