Chantal-Fleur Sandjon: City of Trees

Discussion, Reading, Q&A

It’s been three years since Lindiwe’s older sister, Khanyi, disappeared without a trace. Since then, Lin keeps finding herself drawn back to where Khanyi was last seen: the forest. Here, she feels close to her sister, almost hearing her voice, yet Khanyi’s disappearance remains a mystery, as do the changes happening within Lin herself. A powerful novel that gracefully navigates between poetry and prose, weaving African mythology into the setting of contemporary Berlin.

A cooperation with the Excellence Cluster ›Temporal Communities: Doing Literature in a Global Perspective‹ at Freie Universität Berlin
