Meisterhafte Stories voller Lebenslust Wenige Tage nach ihrem Yale-Abschluss starb Marina Keegan bei einem Autounfall. Sie war ein Ausnahmetalent, das der Welt brillante Texte voller Lebenslust hinterließ. Selbstbewusst und authentisch schrieb sie über Themen, die sie wie viele junge Erwachsene beschäftigten: Liebe, Lust, Eifersucht, Selbstzweifel, Geborgenheit, Ablehnung, Familie und Zukunft. Marina Keegans Stories und Essays vereinen schwerelosen, sensiblen und mitreißenden Optimismus mit ungeheurer literarischer Reife: hoffnungsvoll, wild und melancholisch. Man liest sich atemlos, lachend und mit Tränen in den Augen durch das ganze fulminante Buch.
