Olga Grjasnowa’s astounding debut novel is about young immigrants from all over the world who move to Berlin. One of them is Masha, a headstrong young woman who knows neither borders nor limits. She inhabits a world where all cultures and traditions merge. For Masha and her friends, the issue of origin and nationality is immaterial—they can survive anywhere. But there is nowhere they can really call home. Olga Grjasnowa was born in 1984 in Baku, Azerbaijan, grew up in the Caucasus, and has spent extended periods in Poland, Russia, and Israel. She moved to Germany at the age of twelve and is a graduate of the German Institute for Literature/Creative Writing in Leipzig.
