»Die Kunst
des Verschwindens«

Melanie Raabe reads from her new novel »Die Kunst des Verschwindens« (btb). In it, the young photographer Nico meets the actress Ellen Kirsch and immediately feels an uncanny closeness and bond. Is there such a thing, a kindred spirit between strangers? What do the two women see in each other? A story about an intense encounter and the beginning of a search for oneself.
