Orphan to millionaire. How did it go so wrong?
Peter Holtz wants happiness for everyone. As a child, he tried living without money, made punk music based on the spirit of industrial folk songs and converted to Christianity. He fought for Christian-Communist democracy as a CDU member (East). But to his surprise, the way of the world defies all logic. The market economy rewards his altruism with riches. Had he been fighting for the wrong cause? Or was he simply fighting for the right thing on the wrong path? And above all, how can he decently rid himself of the money? Peter Holtz takes the promises of capitalism at their word. Deploying humour and poetic diction, Ingo Schulze creates a character like we have never seen before, but certainly need today, in times when the world has been turned upside down.
