From the jury decision:
Friederike Goesweiner’s debut novel is a little miracle. It’s a sensitive, emotional and social precisely drawn portrait of a young woman who tries to find her a place in our dog-eat-dog-society. Hannah is following her wishes, her abilities and her feelings – but nobody needs her, not even her boyfriend who’s following his own career. The novel is a portrait of a new ›lost generation‹, between internship and precarity, between dreams of liberty, hopes for a living, solitude and uselessness. The debut prize of the Austrian Bookprize went to this book because it gives a convincing answer on urgent social problems. And it’s a deeply touching read due to its implacability, its truthfulness and its authority.
International furor for author Ilma Rakusa:
the Japanese and the Russian translation are awarded the Merck-Preis by Goethe-Institut Tokyo and Moscow.
