Anna und elf andere Frauen sind im Begriff, sich herauszuheben aus einem Leben, das unbeweglich macht. Eine legt sich mit Kaufhausdetektiven an, die andere will keinen Mann, der ihr mit Biologie kommt, eine denkt an brennende Elefanten und die andere wird, um eine Freiheit zu versuchen, die sie als Frau nicht erlebt, zum Mann.

Es geht um Möglichkeiten und Wege, Verlassenwerden und Verlassen, Weiterleben und Sterben. Jede der zwölf Erzählungen ist eine Moritat, ein Gesang auf eine Heldin, eine Aufschreibung aus einem Leben, das beklemmend ist und eine Lösung für die persönliche Freiheit fordert.

"Annalieder" sind keine Schönwettergeschichten und dennoch nicht ohne Komik. So wie Anna und die anderen Frauen sich abheben von der Unbeweglichkeit des Lebens, hebt sich Kegeles Sprache ab von unbeweglicher Literatur und konventionellen Denk- und Sprachmustern.
