"Zeh's intriguing debut is part crime drama, part love story, and part drug novel, and it functions well as each of these. What makes it a great book--and probably why it won last year's German Book Award for most successful debut novel--is its skillful yet subtle integration of the politics of expansion into both foreground and background." Booklist Starred Review, 10/15/2003About the Author:
Juli Zeh was born in 1974 in Bonn. She has worked for the UN in New York, Krakow and Zagreb. She lives in Leipzig.
