Brinkmann’s “honour-killing” thriller finds a new German publisher
Leda-Verlag plans to present Gabriele Brinkmann’sEhre, wem ehre… (To Whom Honour is Due) at the Frankfurt book fair this week. Publisher Heike Gerdes conceded that the book “might provoke some,” but insisted that it did not single out “the Turks” or Islam for criticism, focusing instead on traditional misogynic attitudes.
We believe that everyone should form their own impression. We have found nothing in the text which would deter us from publication, and will bring out the book in full.
A percentage of the book’s profits will be donated to the charity Solidarity With Women in Need.
As a precaution, the police have been informed.
