Reading in German About the book A yoga teacher inadvertently solves a murder in which her students are involved. Milena Moser’s new novel lives up to her earlier great successes: vividly observed, grippingly and wittily told, the story entangles four people in a tragicomically furious life and love drama. Milena Moser’s characters never quite get a total grip on their lives; they are likeable, weird, and as accountable as our real next door neighbours – and their story is pure reading pleasure.
