Shortlist German Book Prize 2018 – Jury evaluation:
»Every sentence here attests to the joy of storytelling. From the first page, the reader is right in the middle of this novel of guilt and atonement, feverishly following the general’s plan for revenge. He wants to atone for a crime in which he himself participated during the Chechen war. Narrative threads full of questions run below the novel’s thriller-like surface: What effect does the ›toxic past‹ have on the present? Are wars never over? Why does the Georgian family living in Germany long for home, even though life there was hell? The characters – all of them ›stuck between times and worlds‹ – are brimming with vitality, and everything is told with powerful imagery and sensuousness: Great cinema!«
Mareike Fallwickl's debut novel »Dark Green Almost Black« is among the ten novels selected for shortlist of the Austrian Book Prize 2018
