Der Hecht im Schulranzen
Der Hecht im Schulranzen is a purely fictitious tale imaginatively told by Wolfgang Nieblich that relates the story of four generations of the Fisher family, starting in 1936 and ending with the theft of a pike in 2010. The text incorporates real events into the story that overlap, cross, and interfere with each other in time. Other than their family ties, the male protagonists also share a love of the lake or other bodies of water, a love of fish, and a passion for writing books.
“Der Hecht im Schulranzen has a lot to offer ... These family chronicles are told in a way that is at times philosophical as the protagonists are ultimately taken on a journey around the world. But it doesn‘t merely relate a fictitious story. Quite a few fish recipes and illustrations depicted with loving detail make the book a real treat, and not just for fishermen!”
