Germany's Jenny Erpenbeck wins International Booker Prize DW 05/22/2024
Briefly

Canadian broadcaster Eleanor Wachtel praised 'Kairos' as 'a richly textured evocation of a tormented love affair, the entanglement of personal and national transformations.'
'Like [former East Germany], (the book) starts with optimism and trust, then unravels so badly,' Wachtel said, highlighting the intertwining of personal experiences and national history in the novel.
Erpenbeck mentioned her desire for 'Kairos' to reveal facets of former East Germany beyond the commonly known Stasi oppression: 'That is not all there is.'
