Antonia and Chris have a child, the marriage breaks down, the small Timon remains with Antonia. To him, the "bellows", the novel. The single parents, Antonia is overwhelmed. The teacher does not understand that he was slitting the pillows in the school room with a pair of scissors – he didn't want to just get rid of the white "sheep" in it. The label of "problem student," remains in him.
"The so-called difficult children are always the ones you remember the longest," says Tabea Steiner. She has no children of their own, but she is a trained primary school teacher and power of the delegates. "Bellows" is her first book. So far she has made as a literature organizer for a name. So she has called, for example, the Thun festival of literature Literaare and organized Aprillen the Bernese reading.
The 38-Year-old, who now lives in Zurich, comes from the Eastern part of Switzerland. There Tabea Steiner grew up in a 300-person village. Also "bellows" is playing in the country. The spiritual Close, the mutual Monitoring, the constant talk Tabea Steiner knows from his own experience. Nevertheless, the novel is not a settlement. "That all persons living in the same village, makes the story clearer," she explains.
everyone knows Everyone, and everyone talks about everyone. "I want to show that it plays a role what we say." You don't understand how careless some people cope with language. For example, by dehumanizing slogans. Even if this will be seen merely as a provocation, would leave such statements tracks.
Against one's own interests
The adults in the "bellows", the overlooked Timon's Not, come off poorly. But you are also a victim, entrenched in the old structures. Just out of Spite, for example, the mother of Timon pulls back from a farm, she had given him. He felt comfortable, and it was also better.
"interested in Me, why do people often act against their own interests", says Tabea Steiner. An answer has not been found, but the book shows how people maneuver themselves in hopeless situations.
The end remains open. A possible sequel: "I hope Timon will not let it get to you. I think he will be as an adult, not a criminal, but perhaps an Anarchist."
