Kat Kaufmann

A novel dissecting the foundations of

society in a world in which the ownerless
dog becomes an aggressive wolf, searching
for its pack.
SUPERPOSITION is the story of the 26-year-old jazz-pianist, Izy Lewin. Staggering
through Berlin's days and nights while past and presence, boundaries between
dream and reality become fluid. Izy is stuck between humiliating hotel gigs,
desperate advances and other crappy things. The great dying will begin with
babushka Ella and then Izy will be all alone in the world. Homeless. Her best
friend Timur could be home. Like a dog and a wolf howling at the moon, with a
bottle of Nastoy, listening to old jazz records, arm in arm under the table or at
dawn in the park: Whereever Timur is, there is tundra and steppe, it tastes and
German, Hoffmann und Campe
smells of home. A home that does not belong to her, one that she is only allowed
to borrow.

Kat Kaufmann embodies literary zeitgeist in an ideal way: Together Kaufmann

and the emigrants are a present to German Literature.
Hamburger Abendblatt

Kat Kaufmann wrote an ecstatic intoxicating novel, which could be dominated

by a huge hangover, judging by all the vodka drunk in it. Instead, you will feel
wiser, clearer, stronger after its lecture.

sound, very explicit. I loved it.

Kat Kaufmann's second nature is knowing which sentences to reduce, which

words to omit, she has a very special feel for rhythm.
Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung

This reads beautifully. Unusual. Kaufmann's novel is a mixture of love-story and

urban road-movie
Die Presse

What a sound: Angry, shrill, hungry for life. In Kat Kaufmann's debut this turns to
poetry, rough and with an irresistible urge.
Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung

An absolute must for everyone, who likes good literature and the poetic
freshness of a new writer.
