Translated from the German by Caroline Wilcox Reul. In this bilingual edition, Borchers, unafraid and comfortable in her skin, confronts the serious quandaries of existence. The book’s six sections highlight her penchant for stylistic experimentation, which ranges from sophisticated, subtle political commentary to inventive rhyme and playful personal narratives. Borchers’ forty-year tenure as an editor is evident in her authoritative voice, which, even as it boldly leads the reader into fraught territory, remains always affable and open.
