Our House

Barbara Konig

Barbara König's Our House is an extended meditation on identity, individuality, chance, and choice.



As the novel opens Nadine is returning home with her new love, who departs after they make a date for the evening. She then converses with a series of characters with insight into her past and a stake in her future--and who turn out to be elements of her own fragmented personality. With remarkable psychological insight, König details Nadine's search for her self, her essence, delineating a young woman's hopes and fears through the constant examination of the kaleidoscopic aspects of her mind.

Reviews
"König has an ironic touch, neatly steering her terse, episodic narrative away from the maudlin and the simplistic." --Publishers Weekly
