Doitscha
A Jewish mother reveals all

Reading and Discussion with Adriana Altaras as Part of the New German Stories Series

After her acclaimed debut Titos Glasses (2011), which tells the story of her parents in former Yugoslavia, Adriana Altaras own family is the focus in her second novel – there is the elder son David, who would like to be Israeli and provokes his Westphalian father with the words "Hey, Doitscha", the younger son who loves churches and believes that he was swapped at birth – and she herself, who as mother is caught between two stools.
