Book premiere

Reading: Hans-Werner Meyer

The writer Eric Nil has lived through and endured them himself.
He has then written an astute, bitterly ironic report about it, that will put a smile on the faces of all of those who will also find themselves falling between two stools at the next family gathering.
It’s daughter Nora’s school graduation. Everyone has her best interests at heart. Yet in an age in which families frequently dissolve into single units that in turn reconvene with other single units to become some sort of new family-like creation, a school graduation can quickly become an emotional minefield. It all comes to a bitter end.
At least this is what the first-person narrator makes of the situation. He decides to prepare himself, as one thing is certain: the fact that his new girlfriend Johanna’s son is a classmate of Nora’s and also taking part in the graduation does not exactly make things easier.
Inevitably his ex-girlfriend will meet Johanna at the ceremony and he too will meet Johanna’s ex-boyfriend. And that isn’t yet all: His son Alex hasn’t spoken to him in years. But he has agreed to come on his sister’s behalf…
Eric Nil is the pseudonym of a famous author, who is well-versed in dealing with difficult family constellations.
