With "Blaue Frau," Antje Rávik Strubel won the German Book Prize in the fall of 2021. In it, she tells the story of Adina, whose story from the earlier novel "Unter Schnee" (Under Snow) continues after 20 years, "sensitively, often almost lyrically, always gently, but never glossing over it. She has succeeded in creating a "profound portrait of an unheroic heroine" and writes "stirringly about the unequal preconditions of love, the abysses of Europe, and how we turn the monstrous into normality."
