Summer 1972: After two years abroad, Amrei returns to Munich to finish her studies – the city where she spun bold dreams for the future during the student protests in 1968. Torn between two men, the policeman Wastl and the leftist David, she fled the city in a hurry back then. Now she finds that the former rivals have become friends. But the idyll is deceptive. Against the backdrop of the Olympic Games, she must decide what price she is willing to pay for her dreams. The novel will be published by List Verlag on 27 July.

Heidi Rehn, born in Koblenz on the Rhine, has been working as a freelance journalist and author in Munich for many years. She has made a name for herself especially with her Munich novels from the first half of the 20th century. In 2014, she received the Golden Homer for the best historical relationship and social novel. She regularly organises literary walks through Munich.

Munich Public Library

Public libraries provide people with media of all kinds, teach media literacy and thus enable participation in social life. These are also the tasks of the Munich Public Library. It is a lively metropolitan library that sees the diversity of the city's society as a challenge and takes it up in its services.
