A young woman stands at the window and looks out into the evening sky. It is January and business is not going at all well; thoughts whirl about in her head. "The horse fellow," a former jockey, is looking for his daughter. "The Bielefeld man" is cornering the market with his new business plans, investing in nightclubs and sex shops. "AK 47" lies in the street, blood seeping from a bullet wound.
Clemens Meyer weaves these characters' stories, lives, and voices into a wild chorus of night, creating a blazing, monumental portrait of a city and of our time.
Meyer "throws himself into his stories, he approaches his characters with a precise, curious, and almost tender gaze. [He] knows what he is writing about, knows the people, the settings, the scenes, the moods. … Particularly in their quiet moments, his stories unfold into an almost inhuman power and closeness."
