Dear friends,

Or, and I strongly suggest you do that: Support your local bookshop and ask them to order a copy for you! Have a look at the first couple of pages here. An e-book version will be available soon.

I would like to thank you all for following my blog. Your positive feedback inspired me. I also would like to thank Jürgen Fehrmann for the cover design and Maja Zade for reading and proofreading my stories.

Buy Trashbus. The Balkan Stories. for your own reading pleasure, buy it for a good friend or colleague, and don’t forget to spread the word! You may have read some of the stories, but I’d love for you to come back here and drop me a line after you read the book.

Lots of love and hugs and kisses,

Trashbus. The Balkan Stories.
56 Pages
ISBN-13: 978-3-7431-8222-6
Publisher: Books on Demand
Publication Date: 16.03.2017

Trashbus is a place where random objects, things unused, weird people and stories long forgotten live their peculiar lives. Anecdotes about a grandmother who once met the devil and a failed boat trip, a lost kitten and a wild dog, a gloomy hotel and a fortunate gypsy tell of people, lands, and lives that unfold their real madness apart from common clichés.

Each time I visit my family, I think: “This might be the last time we see each other.” Now I am asking you: Am I morbid?
