The sequel to Stefanie Zweig’s celebrated autobiographical novel Nowhere in Africa, Somewhere in Germany is a story about trying to find one’s home, and the futility of recapturing a past that is gone. Amidst a vivid backdrop of post-Nazi Germany, the Redlich family returns to a decimated Frankfurt after a nine-year exile in Kenya. Max Roll beautifully narrates the struggle of each family member as they try once again to adjust to a homeland that’s become alien to them.
A dual narrative between an undercover agent held hostage by jihadist fighters in Somalia and a bio-mathematician preparing to dive to the darkest depths of the Greenland Sea, J. M. Ledgard’s Submergence weaves together these stories with memories of the duo's intense love affair. Narrator Julian Elfer brings this haunting and thought-provoking piece to life as each character travels further and further into their own abyss.
