Tagebuch der sanften Quarantäne


In his debut, Erik Eising sends us on a capricious rollercoaster ride across the infection curve of the first five weeks of the pandemic. The shock of the ban on social contact, and the inner emptiness that followed in its wake, are variously encountered, sharpening the gaze of the reader for a gentle freedom that only sterile indoor air could make us aware of.

With his refined style, that seems to develop directly before our eyes, his cooked-up imaginativeness and subtle humour, the author presents a richly detailed piece of contemporary history in the garb of an intimate narrative that ultimately speaks to us all.

The gradual interweaving of death, literature, and digital life enfolded within these pages establishes this text as a first serious literary treatment of the most recent past.
