In her book Schappi, Anna Haifisch blurs the boundaries between humans and animals in a subtle way. In five collected short stories carnivores and herbivores meet at a nerve-wracking congress, you get to know a merciless, art-collecting lizard, meet dancing ostriches and a melancholy meditating octopus. With the usual wit and charm, Anna Haifisch tells of the everyday struggle in the steppe or on the drawing table, of self-imposed isolation and friendship. At the end of the day there is hope, even for crying weasels.
