Willenbrock by Andreas Dresen( visu )
9 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in German and held by 34 libraries worldwide
Bernd Willenbrock is a used car dealer in the newly unified Germany. In the nascent free market of Central Europe, the former East German engineer seems to be the paradigm of the new world: a successful businessman, an owner of real estate, a generous husband. Prosperity seems assured by a steady stream of cash-only clients from Eastern Europe, and plans for a glitzy new show room are under way. Yet little by little, a series of ever-more menacing incidents -- an attempted break-in, the theft of several cars, a vicious beating -- erode his innermost certainties. No amount of locks and latches, it seems, can contain his growing obsession with external safety or stop the coming violence
