It is almost too perfect to be true: Kurt and his girlfriend Lena to buy a house in the surroundings of Berlin, to be Kurt's eponymous son. Just as the Couple and the child to the new Situation have become accustomed to, all seems well, dies of the Small. Quietly, without the guilty – all of a sudden the little Kurt is no more.
The family drama, the Sarah Kuttner portrays in her latest novel "Kurt" from the perspective of Lena, is partially difficult for them to handle. For example, when Lena tells how the little Boy is digging vigorously in the new garden, and you know that he's going to be a few pages later, dead. How does a father with the loss of a child? As the girlfriend, not the mother, the child but still loved? What to do and say when there is nothing to say, and to do that could alleviate the grief?
the Final answers, not the 40-year - old Kuttner, as Viva and MTV presenter known; instead, an intimate insight into the world of a grieving Patchwork-family. And she does this, as you already did it in your last three novels: easy, funny, and touching. Because the topics about which she writes, are never shallow. In "imperfect copy" – their debut album, which appeared ten years ago – it's about depression, and then the Third Life Crisis and broken families.
you have to do your stories, nothing, said Kuttner in a recent Interview with the "Annabelle": "I imagine it is hard for me to write something very autobiographical, because then I would miss the outside view on the matter." The few similarities between the "Kurts" Lena Kuttner: Both live in a small house in Brandenburg, and both gardeners with a passion.
