NORDEN - the nordic arts festival

Kerstin Jacobsen

"Das Leben eben" by Kerstin Jacobsen, born in Schleswig in 1967, also completed her Abitur and her training as a bookseller there.

This book is about Marie, who sometimes wears heavily on her role as a mother and has to come to terms with her past life when old letters from her own mother are found in the attic.Then there is daughter Linnea, who is in the midst of puberty, brings home her first boyfriend, and often can't explain her own behavior herself.Sons and fathers are also given multiple and important roles.In short interludes, the author herself has her say and tells of the difficulties of creating a true book out of the existence of a desire and an idea.
