"A child deprived of love is a star without a sky. Readers of this book will succumb, as I did, to its distinctive lure. It says everything there is to say without feeling the need to explain." Vassilis Vassilikos


"An enthralling book. Valentin’s whirlwind narrative offers plenty of food for thought." —Süddeutsche Zeitung


"Stephan Valentin describes a child’s world with words that are simple, blunt and genuine. Impeccable."
