A book that searches in vain for an equal – and possibly in vain for its narrator …
Who is Kirio: an oddball, a madman, a saint? His trail first appears in the South of France and is lost in the German town of Hanau during the time of the Brothers Grimm. Kirio enjoys walking on his hands – and in fact generally turning everything on its head. He talks to the rocks and the bats as naturally as to other people, works miracle after miracle and never notices. So who is Kirio? And who is the voice telling us about him? Anne Weber’s new novel reads like a modern legend of a saint, and as a poetic exploration of the boundaries between heaven and earth.
