Strickmich! Sommer Camp Woche 7: Ozelot und Friesennerz

Susanne Matthiessen grew up on Germany’s jet-set island Sylt in the 70s and 80s where her parents had a fur boutique – you can imagine how bizarre her childhood was! The parents were working all the time, doing everything they could to make the tourists feel comfortable, while the kids where free to roam about the beach. As their rooms were rented out to guests, many of Susanne’s friends had to sleep in a tent in their parents’ gardens during summer… It’s a fun read and a great audiobook, and I hope it will be made available as an English translation at some point.

Sommer Camp Week 6

This week’s Sommer Camp audiobook is available in English!

Simone Buchholz lives in Hamburg’s famous red light district St. Pauli. And that’s also where her crime stories around prosecutor Chastity Riley take place. In “Blue Night” (all links to amazon.com), Chastity is called to take care of an unknown man who turned up in a hospital, beaten and unconscious. Slowly, he reveals some of his secrets that lead her to discover much bigger crimes than she could imagine… Find the audiobook on Amazon – and let me know what you think of it in Strickmich! Netz!

Strickmich! Sommer Camp Week 5

This week in Strickmich! Sommmer Camp, we’re listening to an audiobook by German thriller author Yassin Musharbash, whose book “Russische Botschaften” premiers this week. In my podcast, I talk to him about his collaboration with John le Carré on a book that deals with the German scene of islamic terrorists and the attacks of September 11th 2001. So, if you are interested in Yassin’s work, check out the audiobook “A Most Wanted Man” (link to amazon.com) by John le Carré.

Strickmich! Sommer Camp Week 4: Knitting by the Window

This week I have talked to Alena Schröder from Berlin: Her book “Junge Frau…” (“Young woman, standing by the window, dawn, blue dress”) is a huge success in Germany and I recommend the audiobook as our audiobook of the week. There is a Dutch translation, and I am pretty sure that there will be an English one at some point. It’s the story of three generations of women through the two World Wars up to today. Absolutely fascinating!

Strickmich! Sommer Camp takes place in Strickmich! Netz, is completely free for participants and full of enthusiastic knitters. Also, there are goodies for you in Strickmich! Shop. Join us today!

Strickmich! Sommer Camp – Week 3

The third week of Strickmich! Sommer Camp starts now! Our motto is “Knitting with friends”, and that’s also what the second photo challenge is about. In Strickmich! Sommer Camp Podcast, I have talked to German author Stephan Bartels about his audiobook “Dicke Freunde” (it’s a word play meaning both “fat friends” and “very good friends”). It’s only available in German, sorry for that!
