Ihr Leben scheint vorgezeichnet: Kinder, Küche, Kirche. Doch Hilla träumt sich weg aus dem Dorf am Rhein. Nichts kann dem Kind kleiner Leute die Sehnsucht nach der Freiheit des Geistes austreiben. Unverhofft bietet sich ihr ein neues Leben: Abitur, Studium, ihre selbst gewählte Zukunft liegt vor ihr. Nach „Das verborgene Wort“ hat die Lyrikerin und Bestsellerautorin Ulla Hahn erneut ein imposantes Epos vorgelegt, das feinnervig vom Erwachsenwerden, Wachwerden, Menschwerden erzählt. Hilla lacht das freieste Lachen der Welt. Es ist der erste Tag nach den Weihnachtsferien im Januar 1963; das Lehrerkollegium des Aufbaugymnasiums hat beschlossen, die Siebzehnjährige noch ins laufende Schuljahr aufzunehmen. Mit diesem Tag beginnt für das wissbegierige Kind „vun nem Prolete“ endlich das lang ersehnte neue Leben, in dem die einfachen Wahrheiten der Eltern nicht mehr gelten, in dem das Buckeln in der Papierfabrik von der Freiheit der Worte abgelöst wird. Doch wird Hilla ihre wahre Heimat wirklich in der Sprache finden? „Aufbruch“ gewährt einen anrührenden Blick in die Seele einer mutigen und doch so verletzlichen Heranwachsenden – und zeichnet sprachübermütig und mit großem epischem Temperament ein detailreiches Sittengemälde von den bundesrepublikanischen Mittsechzigern.

Am Brunnen stand ein großer Hund, trank Wasser dort mit seinem Mund. Da mit der Peitsch herzu sich schlich der bitterböse Friederich; und schlug den Hund, der heulte sehr, und trat und schlug ihn immer mehr. Da biß der Hund ihn in das Bein, recht tief bis in das Blut hinein. Der bitterböse Friederich, der schrie und weinte bitterlich. Jedoch nach Hause lief der Hund und trug die Peitsche in dem Mund. Ins Bett muß Friedrich nun hinein, litt vielen Schmerz an seinem Bein; und der Herr Doktor sitzt dabei und gibt ihm bittre Arzenei. Der Hund an Friedrichs Tischchen saß, wo er den großen Kuchen aß; aß auch die gute Leberwurst und trank den Wein für seinen Durst. Die Peitsche hat er mitgebracht und nimmt sie sorglich sehr in acht.

Das javanische Schattentheater wayang kulit gilt als der Inbegriff javanischer Kunst und Ethik. Anhand einer historischen Analyse der wayang kulit Rezeptionsgeschichte kann jedoch gezeigt werden, dass der Stellenwert des wayang kulit als -klassische- Theaterform zum grossen Teil Produkt der in der Kolonialzeit entstandenen und von der kolonialen Elite weiterentwickelten Interpretationen ist. Wayang kulit wird in einen historischen und sozio-politischen Rahmen gestellt, um zu analysieren, wie die wissenschaftlichen Kategorien Europas das heutige Verstandnis vom wayang kulit gepragt und verandert haben."

Als ihr dabei ein schreckliches Missgeschick passiert, bei dem ihr in letzter Sekunde ein halb nackter Cowboy zu Hilfe eilt, ist sie erst überrascht und erleichtert, dann neugierig – und schließlich zögerlich, weil er ganz offensichtlich mehr sein will, als nur ihr Retter in der Not.
