Marie Pohl’s novel “Geisterreise” (“Ghost Trip”) is characterised by curiosity and the love of adventure. It is the story of a journey that begins with love and becomes a tour de force trip through religions, myths, rituals, and countries of the world. Cuba, Mexico, Bali, Ireland, and Germany are some stops on the way, which lead to the remotest corners of the earth, and, ultimately, to one’s self.
