Literature

The Internet has been shut down for decades, the status symbols of the past are nothing more than junk electronics. Reiner, who's in his mid-twenties, collects laptops from this bygone era and becomes the founder of a youth movement that glorifies the past – the freedom of a society that shares everything. With the help of a car battery they manage to connect to the long-shutdown servers. Then they glimpse something that nobody has seen for decades: the Internet. Dissecting and scrutinising our present, Josefine Rieks has written a fast-paced and clever novel. A page-turning debut.

Josefine Rieks was born in 1988 in Höxter, studied philosophy and lives in Berlin. She wrote the screenplay for the no-budget film U3000 – Tod einer Indieband. (U3000 Death of an Indie Band). In 2017 she received the Alfred Döblin Scholarship.
