Ventinove episodi, racconti in forma di capitoli, variamente intrecciati tra loro, ambientati nella provincia dell’ex Ddr, all’indomani della caduta del Muro. Vi si narrano piccoli episodi di vita quotidiana, apparentemente insignificanti ma che costituiscono momenti di snodo nelle esistenze dei protagonisti, senza che essi ne abbiano però vera consapevolezza. Storie minimali, periferiche, banali di persone qualunque che cercano di sopravvivere in un mondo trasformato. Come l’ex dirigente di partito messo in disparte dopo l’89 o la giornalista i cui articoli sono sempre meno importanti delle inserzioni pubblicitarie di cui il direttore è a caccia. O come Martin, che non fa in tempo a finire il dottorato di ricerca all’università perché dopo la caduta del Muro sono cambiati tutti i professori e i nuovi si portano i loro allievi, con conseguenze a catena per lui drammatiche: al punto che che per campare finisce a fare per la catena Nordsee un umiliante lavoro di promozione vestito da sub, con tanto di muta, pinne, maschera e boccaglio, finché non decide di andarsene arrancando sotto la pioggia nel suo costume. Schulze focalizza nei minimi dettagli singoli episodi, frammenti di vita e pur senza esplicitare nulla sulla situazione sociopolitica, dai racconti fa emergere un quadro chiarissimo e ironicamente spietato del momento storico. Ne risulta un libro insieme triste, per l’angosciante assenza di prospettiva e di speranza, e ironico, per il carattere grottesco di ogni tentativo di riscatto che va a cozzare contro un destino ineluttabile. Semplici storie è stato pubblicato da Mondadori nel 2001 e ha vinto il premio letterario della città di Berlino..

A psycho turns fairy-tale endings into nightmares in this “vivid cat-and-mice game” from the New York Times–bestselling author (William Bayer, Edgar Award–winning author). Karen is a lonely middle-aged doctor with a house in the woods. Sarah is a grief-stricken suburban widow who has turned to booze and barbiturates. Jordan is a directionless high school student and a child of divorce. They are three women with nothing in common but their red hair—until a stranger who calls himself the Big Bad Wolf sends each one the same chilling letter. Just like vulnerable Little Red Riding Hood, they are going to be stalked and killed—but in three distinct ways, in three different locations, all on the same fateful day. The one thing this devious madman didn’t count on was the Reds discovering each other. When authorities refuse to help, Karen, Sarah, and Jordan band together. It’s only then that they discover power in numbers, and how far they’re willing to go to beat the Wolf at his own game. From the New York Times–bestselling author, comes “a twisted riff” on a Grimm tale (Publishers Weekly). “Must reading for thriller fans.”—Booklist, starred review “Few writers of crime fiction seem to understand the criminal mind as well as Katzenbach.” —People

GQ (Italy) called Davide Longo, "the most talented and intense Italian novelist of his generation." In this dystopian, post-apocalyptic literary novel, Italy is on the brink of collapse: borders are closed, banks are refusing to distribute money to their clients, the postal service is shuttered, and food supplies are running short. Armed gangs of drug-fueled youth rampage through the countryside as the nation descends into chaos. Leonardo was once a famous writer and professor before a sex scandal ended his marriage and his career. With society collapsing around them, his ex-wife leaves their daughter and son in his care as she sets off in search of her new husband, who is missing. Ultimately, Leonardo is forced to evacuate and take his children to safety, but to do so he will have to summon a quality he has never exhibited before: courage.
