By Anna Enquist

Zehn Menschenschicksale, mit leichter Hand erzählt: Frauen, die One-Night-Stands haben, die verliebt sind oder furchtsam angesichts der Herausforderungen des Tages. Poetisch, sinnlich zeichnet die Autorin psychologisch dichte Porträts. In der Erzählung "Hunger" zum Beispiel das der 13-jährigen Hanna, die beinahe verhungert, weil sie sich geschworen hat, keinem Begehren mehr nachzugeben, nachdem ihr von einem Jungen, in den sie verliebt struggle, Gewalt angetan wurde. In einer anderen Erzählung bekommt eine Frau unerwartet ein verschollenes Bild von Vermeer gezeigt und im selben Atemzug höchste Liebeslust. Kurze Zeit später sind weder Bild noch Geliebter auffindbar. Hat sie nur geträumt? Poetische Erzählungen, die holländische Geschichte aus one hundred fifty Jahren verknüpfen mit dem Seelenleben tiefer Charaktere.
