Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* The original German version of this fiction collection bore the title Handy: Thirteen Stories in the Time-Honored Mode, a reference to the prominent role of the cell phone (“das Handy” in colloquial German) in several of these short stories and a hint at the tension between old and new, which undergirds them all. As in his luminous novel New Lives (2008), Schulze introduces us to characters whose relationships have been complicated by the melting of all that may have once seemed solid in our increasingly capitalist world. “Calcutta” (its title an allusion to Günter Grass’ Indian sojourn) probes the false intimacies of suburban neighborliness; in “Estonia, Out in the Country,” a former circus bear becomes a desperate economic opportunity; in “Faith, Love, Hope Number 23,” even love itself may be a trick played upon a young lawyer. Arguably the centerpiece, “New Year’s Eve Confusions” adeptly uses a man’s fantasies of romantic fulfillment with a long-ago lover to explore the emotional resonance of German reunification. An expert at subtly disorienting his audience, Schulze writes in a disarmingly simple style that gives the impression of openness and intimacy even as it reveals ugly fractures and unforeseen complications. --Brendan Driscoll

About the Author

Ingo Schulze was born in Dresden in 1962, studied classics at Jena University, and worked as a dramaturge and newspaper editor in Altenburg. For his first book, 33 Moments of Happiness (1995), he won various prizes, including the Aspekte Prize for Best Debut. In 1998 he won both the Berlin Literature Prize and the associated Johannes Bobrowski Medal for Simple Stories. In the same year, The New Yorker numbered him among the six best young European novelists, and the London Observer described him as one of the “twenty-one writers to look out for in the 21st century.” In 2005 his novel New Lives was honored with the Peter Weiss Prize and the Premio Grinzane Cavour. In 2007 he won the Leipzig Book Fair Prize for One More Story, his second collection of stories. He is a member of the Academy of the Arts in Berlin and the German Academy for Language and Literature. His books have been translated into more than thirty languages. He lives in Berlin with his wife, Natalia, and their two daughters, Clara and Franziska.
