On Water Lily Children:
“Just as I was worrying about fiction’s increasingly obscure position in today's publishing world, a genuine novel with a capital N lands on my table. And - to boot - written by a newcomer. In her debut novel, Water Lily Children, Susanne Axmacher shows such outstanding artistry as a novelist that I can probably supress my worries for a while."
