Empusion: a natural (un)medical horror story. With Olga Tokarczuk and Andreas Grötzinger
September 1913, Görbersdorf, in Lower Silesia. Set amid a mountain landscape, the first ever sanatorium for repsiratory diseases has stood for half a century. Patients from all over Europe gather there and, as on Thomas Mann's Magic Mountain, they discuss and philosophise tirelessly with one another – preferably over a glass of liqueur. These gentlemen debate the urgent questions of the day: Will there be war in Europe? Which form of government is best? But there are also some seemingly less pressing ones: whether demons exist, or whether one can tell who wrote a particular text – a woman or a man? And the "women's question" is one that these gentlemen are particularly fond of. While the gentlemen are waxing enthusiastic, however, mysterious deaths occur ... Are dark forces at work there? With Empusion, Nobel Prize winner Olga Tokarczuk presents a new novel that is both worldly-wise and historically astute. Mod.: Olga Mannheimer, German text: Andreas Grötzinger
