Nix passiert

Alex has been abandoned. And without Jenny, Berlin is simply nothing. Alex decides to take some time out in the town of his childhood. But instead of rest, he finds himself confronted with an idyll that isn't one, never really was one - at least not for him. Instead of support, there's family strife, unpaid bills with old friends and, above all, boredom. And Alex wonders if he ever really left the small town behind. And what home actually means.

Kathrin Weßling presents her novel Nix passiert (Ullstein), which tells the story of a young man who has lied to and deceived not only everyone else, but above all himself. The image of a generation in search of everything and nothing, of home between the provinces and the big city, but above all of itself. An intense and fearless, clear and uncompromising story.
