Awarded the German Book Prize 2019

HERKUNFT is a book about the first coincidence of our biography: being born somewhere. And what comes after that.

HERKUNFT is a book about my homelands, in memory and invention. A book about language, moonlighting, the relay of youth and many summers. The summer when my grandfather stepped on my grandmother's foot while dancing in such a way that I was almost never born. The summer when I almost drowned. The summer when the federal government didn't close the borders and that was similar to the summer when I fled across many borders to Germany.

HERKUNFT is a farewell to my demented grandmother. While I collect memories, she loses hers. HERKUNFT is sad because origin for me has to do with that which can no longer be had.

In HERKUNFT the dead and the snakes speak, and my great-aunt Zagorka sets off for the Soviet Union to become a cosmonaut.

These are also HERKUNFT: a raftsman, a brakeman, a Marxism professor who has forgotten Marx. A Bosnian policeman who would like to be bribed. A Wehrmacht soldier who likes milk. An elementary school for three pupils. A nationalism. A Yugo. A Tito. One Eichendorff. One Saša Stanišić.
