Wie man eine Frau vergisst

A short letter, an empty wardrobe and an empty bed side. That is it. The relationship between Andi and Marga was working well until she simply disappeared. In order to get his mind right, Andi does anything in order to forget her and, after being assigned to conduct research about a group of Protestants, he questions whether God intervened in his life and whether everything will work out. A humorous book, full of ironic situations and the reality behind emotions and escaping them. The book will be read by Dan Lungu, the author, and translated by Jan Cornelius.
