Publisher's Summary

Wie erträgt man das Vergehen der Zeit, wenn man zur Untätigkeit gezwungen ist? Wie geht man um mit dem Verlust derer, die man geliebt hat? Wer trägt das Erbe weiter?

Richard, emeritierter Professor, kommt durch die zufällige Begegnung mit den Asylsuchenden auf dem Oranienplatz auf die Idee, die Antworten auf seine Fragen dort zu suchen, wo sonst niemand sie sucht: Bei jenen jungen Flüchtlingen aus Afrika, die in Berlin gestrandet und seit Jahren zum Warten verurteilt sind. Und plötzlich schaut diese Welt ihn an, den Bewohner des alten Europas, und weiß womöglich besser als er selbst, wer er eigentlich ist.

Jenny Erpenbeck erzählt auf ihre unnachahmliche Weise eine Geschichte vom Wegsehen und Hinsehen, von Tod und Krieg, vom ewigen Warten und von all dem, was unter der Oberfläche verborgen liegt.

    "An important book"
    What made the experience of listening to Gehen, ging, gegangen the most enjoyable?

    Erpenbeck's story is courageous, subtle and beautifully written. I was hooked from the beginning. The book, set in present-day Berlin, makes me see the city and its struggles in a new light. At the same time, the current issues around the "refugee crisis" are presented in the context of Germany's past, including the ideologies of the Third Reich, the GDR and the transformation after the country's reunification. The main character, a retired classics professor, also makes interesting observations of the current moment to Europe's ancient history. Besides this intellectual inspiration, I also felt really drawn to the characters. The book works on so many levels – I strongly recommend it.


    What does Friedhelm Ptok bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    A beautiful, sensitive reading. Couldn't get enough of it!
