What would our country look like if it were governed by a right-wing national party? A highly topical novel by Martin Schäuble – exciting like a thriller
The young soldier Anton guards the border wall that encloses Germany. He is enthusiastic about the National Alternative, the new governing party, and about his country’s self-confidence. His best friend Noah, however, hates this policy. He is not in favour of nuclear power and the abolition of unemployment benefits, nor does he think it’s right that refugees should not be offered protection. People like Fana, who, after fleeing Ethiopia, meets and becomes friends with Anton in Germany’s last refugee camp. When Anton is ordered to carry out a deadly attack, he is forced to choose: for a national ideology or for his friends – and a free life.
