Margit Schreiner
Home, Women, Sex.



After twenty years of marriage, Resi has left husband Frank, who is now rattling about in the large and empty house. He sits, rages and drinks, drinks and rages. His cosy next and hearth are shattered, and the little man plots vengeance. But all he can come up with is words, mean angry words.

»The mayhem lasts for 200 pages, with the men showing solidarity with their fellow-sufferer, while the women shout ›it’s his own fault‹ and ›serves him right‹ – until both sides discover that this frantic piece of prose has been written by a woman, in a way that a politically tamed and emotionally warped man could have never done.«

»I consider this author most excellent.«
Marcel Reich-Ranicki

»A sensational piece of gender-prose.«

»The most entertaining gender-studies available at the moment.«
