Shades of Grey

Maxim Biller On:

Shades of Grey by Anna Prizkau

She’s scared and curious and not in the best of moods – young reporter Anna Prizkau is in deserted east Germany in search of a mysterious Nazi cult. But instead of the notorious Artamans, who once counted Heinrich Himmler among their members, she finds only perfectly normal, sad people. They don’t want to be confused with the Nazis Anna Prizkau is looking for; they lead a perfectly normal, simple country life and have no idea that the Artamans are since in their midst. Journalist Anna Prizkau was born in Moscow in 1986 and came to Germany as a child. She writes reportage and short stories in the style of Isaak Babel and Heinrich Böll.
