By Steinbeck, MichelleTranslated by Calleja, Jen
A young woman goes on a perilous journey in search of her absent father. What ensues is a Freudian adult fairytale in this exciting debut by young Swiss author Michelle Steinbeck. A child attacks Loribeth with an iron while she is sleeping. In retaliation Loribeth throws the iron... onto the child from an upstairs window, packs the damaged body into a suitcase and sets off on her travels. Thus starts Steinbeck's unusual, poetic novella about a young woman's transition from childhood to adulthood.Read more
