Dimensions: 13 × 20 cm
Year of publication: 2022

“Which one is now the mother?” is a question that does not only arise at the moment when Giga has to face a restraining order against her child, but has accompanied her relationship with Alina since Zarja’s birth. Now the family that once fought for equality in the world of heterosexual parents has split into two mothers, two homes, and Urban, Alina’s new partner, which plunges Giga into depression and causes her to break with the overly-confining lesbian scene. But first, in the pandemic capital, she took care of the biggest disaster of the longest night. A witty and critical novel shows that even the most unhappy ending can have the most beautiful beginning.
