Das Schaufenster des Hauses mit der Nummer 35 steht noch leer. Davor sitzt eine Frau mit einer Bierflasche in der Hand und genießt die Morgensonne in der Großen Hamburger Straße. Sie nimmt keine Notiz von dem Laden. In ihrem Rücken sollen aber schon bald Bücher zu sehen sein. Titel auf Hardcover wie „Hell und Dünkel“ sollen die Menschen hineinziehen. Antonia Schulemann öffnet die Tür von innen. Sie hat zusammen mit Shila Behjat den Verlag Beshu Books gegründet. Der Name setzt sich aus den Anfangsbuchstaben der beiden Frauen zusammen. So richtig losgehen mit dem Verlag sollte es, als die Politik den Lockdown beschlossen hatte.
