Gift books for Christmas: 20 tips

For all whose family is a bit dysfunctional At Christmas there are rituals in all families. Maruan, the first-person narrator in Marwan Paschen's second novel, tells his therapist, Dr. Ing. Gänsehaupt, of the Christmas celebrations with his uncles Tarzan, Berti, Art and Otto and his mother. There is always fondue, meat fondue with lots of meat, and it is a ritual to eat the food in handcuffs. What? Can not be? Well, who knows, because the unreliability of the narrator Maruan becomes more apparent from chapter to chapter - and the enjoyment of his stories increases, even as the family secrets become increasingly gloomy. A game about identity, about belonging, about the fact that it can arise through storytelling, inventing. This is not only important at Christmas, but the party can be a reason to think about it - and to give this book away.
