Lesung I internationales literaturfestival berlin
Olivier Guez received the German Film Award for his screenplay for »The People vs. Fritz Bauer«, and his novel »The Disappearance of Josef Mengele«  was an international bestseller. In his new novel, Guez follows the story of Jacques Koskas, journalist and son of a Jewish family living in France. Jacques’ passion is love. In 2000s Berlin he meets Barbara, the woman of his dreams. But Jacques’ journey is far from over. »Fast-paced, highly funny, often crazy, adorable and rousing.« [DLF Kultur]
