Meerjungfrauengesang (Audio Book)

Excerpts read by Regina Stötzel, Susanne Schneider, Eva Gosciejewicz and Patricia Paweletz.

Parts of the life stories of these women, which span an entire century, rise like islands from the sea of the unconscious, thus outlining the traces that silence leaves behind.

The strands of life of four women from three generations of a German family are interwoven. Clara, Helene, Gitte and Philippa all have a special relationship to water:

Clara is afraid of water and almost drowns in the North Sea on her engagement trip. Her daughter Gitte only comes alive when she and her family leave the post-war German narrowness across the Atlantic to Argentina. And for Gitte's daughter Philippa, water is the element in which she feels free until repressed family secrets emerge.

Philippa evokes the previously unheard voices of the individual women in her family. Among them is her great-aunt Helene, who takes in Gitte's child after the war when Clara wants to drown herself. Gitte is much closer connected with Helene than with her mother, and her father Richard also seems to have an illicit closeness with Helene.
