From Rammstein frontman Till Lindemann, now translated into English
Thereâ€™s a place inside us that is cloaked in darkness, rubbed raw with silence. Itâ€™s a shadow wrapped in a shadow and it screams, but it screams in harsh whispers. This collection explores the blackness within, the gritty underground that hides inside memories and cowers just outside fear. The poems, paired with illustrations from Matthias Matthies work in sync to create a collage of blunt sexuality, masochistic, and sometimes sadistic recollections of love, reflection, and self-exploration.
On Quiet Nights pulls back the curtains at night and asks readers to think about who they are. Lindemann holds a mirror to soul, capturing desire and need, with the courage to answer some of lifeâ€™s biggest questions: Who am I? What am I? Why am I?
