In our first „Angelesen“ episode, we present an excerpt from the novel Singer in the Night by Olja Savičević, read by Susanne Bormann.

Listen now (German only):

About the novel: A famous soap opera scriptwriter decides to embark on a road trip in search of her greatest love and ex-husband, an artist whose uncompromising artistic integrity is opposed to her fickle life. Singer in the Night is a rich, sensual novel which comments on perception, on how life is really lived – never objectively, never encompassing the whole truth, and yet no less real to us.

Translated from the Croatian by Blažena Radas and published in German by Voland & Quist.

For those who want to read the novel in English: Singer in the Night was published in English by Istros Books.
