Summary (From the publisher):

Detlev, half Jewish and fatherless, survives the Hamburg firestorm of 1943 to become a child actor in the postwar years of hunger.

The boy Detlev is also the man Jäcki living the explosion of gay culture and student revolt in Hamburg in 1968.

Detlev's Imitations is a sentimental education, an investigation of the possibilities and limits of language, an ethnography of sexual cultures, a novel of Hamburg and a poetic documentation of postwar German history.
