Kairos

Hans and Katharina meet by chance in East Berlin at the end of the 1980s. He is a writer, 50 years old, married. She is 19, an apprentice. An affair begins that will develop its own dynamic over the years. With great directness, Jenny Erpenbeck tells of the internal worlds of her characters ― and also of the outside world, the events of German­-German history.
