Comments  Summary  Reviews

Summary: The Have-Nots was praised by the jury of the German Book Award for courageously confronting some of our age's most pressing issues. 'Her protagonists are in their 30s, they know it all and yet of one thing they know nothing: themselves', wrote the jurors. In one of three interweaving storylines, Jakob abd Isabelle meet at a party on September 11. They marry and move to London, where Jakob takes the post of a colleague killed in the 9/11 attack. But the couple's relationship proves more fragile each passing day.
