`By turns beguiling and unsettling, Flotsam examines grief and loss through the eyes of an extraordinary child' Rachel Seiffert

Trine and her mother live in a cottage on the German coast. The mudflats that surround them disappear and reappear with the North Sea tides. The family leads a lonely existence, but each person has adapted in their own way. Anna roams the beaches collecting flotsam and jetsam to make art, while Trine loves playing on a wartime shipwreck. That is, until she loses her brother.

In her taut style, Meike Ziervogel tells a coming-of-age story from 1950s Germany - a place still haunted by war. A place where people pretend not to notice the ghosts.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Ziervogel grew up in Germany and this taut, mysterious novel not only conjures female subjectivities and grief, but it also paints a haunting portrait of the country in the 1950s Germany, with its greater sense of loss, and the looming spectre of crimes committed during the war.

-- Arifa Akbar * The Guardian *
