Jenny Erpenbeck minns barndomens Östberlin

Berlin, Loch in Mauer am Reichstag

Berlinmuren 1990. Via Paris Review.

”From the outside, there may well have been something exotic about our Socialist reality, but we ourselves saw our lives neither as wonder nor terror. It was just ordinary life, and in this ordinariness we felt at home.”

Citerat ur ”Homesick for Sadness” av Jenny Erpenbeck i The Paris Review, 8 november 2014. Den tyska författarinnan skriver gripande och osentimentalt om sin barndom på östsidan av Berlin-muren.
