Katharina Winklers Debütroman Blauschmuck beruht zur Gänze auf wahren Begebenheiten. Er macht die Abgründe von Abhängigkeit und brutaler Unterdrückung anschaulich und erzählt vom Leben einer Frau, in dem Liebe und Gewalt nicht nur untrennbar, sondern nicht mehr zu unterscheiden sind. Filiz wächst in einem kurdischen Dorf in der Türkei auf. Sie ist zwölf, als sie sich in den um wenige Jahre älteren Yunus verliebt und mit ihm von einem gemeinsamen Leben im Westen träumt. Mit fünfzehn heiratet sie ihn – heimlich und gegen den Willen ihres Vaters. Doch mit der Hochzeit platzen auch die Träume von Freiheit und Autonomie: Statt Jeans trägt Filiz jetzt Burka; gemeinsam mit den drei Kindern, die in dieser Ehe geboren werden, ist sie der körperlichen und seelischen Brutalität ihres Mannes und ihrer Schwiegermutter ausgesetzt. Daran ändert auch die Emigration der Familie in den Westen nichts – vorerst. Denn nach einer neuerlichen Eskalation der Gewalt gelingt Filiz das vermeintlich Unmögliche: die Befreiung aus physischer und psychischer Abhängigkeit.

Wie fühlt es sich an, eine Kuh zu sein? Ziemlich ähnlich wie ein Mensch. Davon ist Rosamund Young, britische Ökobäuerin der ersten Stunde, überzeugt: Kühe haben Gefühle und gehen persönliche Beziehungen ein. Sie sprechen miteinander, geben ihre Weisheit weiter, kümmern sich um den Nachwuchs, spielen Verstecken, sind beleidigt, verärgert, traurig oder aufgekratzt. Young, die auf ihrer Farm Kite‘s Nest in den Cotswolds im Herzen Englands seit vielen Jahren biologische Landwirtschaft betreibt, hat zu ihren Kühen ein ganz besonderes Verhältnis. »Ich bin keine Schriftstellerin, ich bin Ghostwriter für meine Kühe«, sagt sie. Youngs ebenso warmherziges wie charmantes Plädoyer für einen Umgang mit den Tieren auf Augenhöhe verändert unseren Blick und lässt uns staunen. »Niemand, der dieses Buch gelesen hat, wird Kühe so sehen wie zuvor.« The Guardian
