Luft und Liebe
That one great love – is there such a thing? In her early forties and long since accustomed to perfectly normal fortune or misfortune in matters of the heart, she meets a man past his prime with the beginnings of a belly in Paris, a man no one would turn around to look at in the street. But contrary to all expectations, this is the man our heroine has been waiting for. He is tender, attentive and charming, head-over-heels in love and promises her heaven on earth. And to make matters even more idyllic, this fairytale prince lives in a French chateau in the country.
To good to be true? When the dreams of a life together, a wedding and a child threaten to become reality they pop like soap bubbles. And the story, told with great lightness of touch and sparkling irony, comes to a shocking end…
Anne Weber’s linguistic brilliance, her ability ‘to be serious in a light-hearted way’ (Jochen Jung, Die Zeit) make an unprecedented incident into a novel riddled with ambiguity.
