You don't know what freedom is until it has gone
"313" is a number given to replace a name and an identity. In his first novel, Ben Tewaag takes us into a story that gets going in one of the toughest prisons in Germany.
Oli Stein, the protagonist in the novel, is a successful musician who ends up getting involved in drugs and violence and is given a prison sentence. From his 8-square-meter cell he writes of the last ten years and his time behind bars. This is a brutally honest and realistic journey through the entire range of emotions and all social classes – a potpourri of self-destructive excesses, disappointment, sex, violence, drugs, fun, failure.
Tough stuff, vivid, told with humour.
