Our Turning Point series, in which three internationally acclaimed female authors depict pivotal historical moments from within a domestic setting:. A German modern classic about the fall of the Wall, a Finnish postmodern Victorian novel about faith versus knowledge and a Polish love story spanning sixty years from the Warsaw Ghetto to Israel. The Mussel Feast by Birgit Vanderbeke. Chasing the King of Hearts by Hanna Krall.

The internationally acclaimed Polish bestseller about the Holocaust. A remarkable true story of love and survival. As the evening wears on, we glimpse the issues that are tearing this family apart. I wanted to understand how revolutions start. It seemed logical to use the figure of a tyrannical father and turn the story into a German family saga.

Why Peirene chose to publish this book: I love this monologue. The author lays bare the contradictory logic of an inflexible mind.

This is a poignant yet hilarious narrative with a brilliant ending. She has written 17 novels. The book was published in and has never been out of print since.
It has been translated into all major European languages, including French, Spanish and Italian. Jamie Bulloch is a historian and has worked as a professional translator from German since Vanderbeke is able to animate her characters with just a few quick, clear strokes, and yet the reader cannot help but feel with them — their terror; their fear; their tiny, burgeoning hope.
It was neither a sign nor a coincidence that we were going to have mussels that evening. Nor were the mussels a coincidence.
