Written by Jutta Nymphius

Karli is annoyed. His father really thinks he can take part in a wheelchair race with his old, crappy wheelchair. His mother tries to invent useful devices instead of doing the household. Why can’t people around him be as “normal” and average as his best friend Robin and his family?

Jutta Nymphius has enthused us with her ability to absolutely believably describe the world through the eyes of a pubescent boy. At the same time, she equips this world with all kinds of supposed obstacles, which later turn out to be nothing more than reality [… ].From the of the jury for the Hamburg Literature Award 2021
