Even if you are sitting between the chairs you can still fall off the bar stool
Doris Kindermann, in her early thirties, works in a youth centre in Cologne. Since both her affairs and her bank account are stagnating somewhere in the red, Doris is able to live out her helper syndrome to the full and keeps going to her favourite pub, the "Dead Horst", to devote herself to adults with behavioural problems. When one night her teenage sweetheart Gunnar appears on the scene, Doris decides to rejig her life completely – and gets hopelessly entangled.
Here at last is a women's novel that is not cheerfully cheeky but instead a brilliantly and wittily told rollercoaster of a story set among overrated trendy drinks, underestimated hurdles and true treasures.
"Astutely and humorously, she tells of a social worker in her early thirties … This is about true life, cursing, and drinking."
