Tales from the night

A train driver who loves night shifts until a laughing man stands on the tracks. A night watchman patroling outside a home for immigrants who falls in love with a woman behind the fence. A burger-bar owner looking out at the city’s shining satellites. Masterfully, trancelike and with the confidence of a sleepwalker, Clemens Meyer’s stories tell of lost battles and overwhelming wishes. They are stories from our time, as dark as the world, as beautiful as the brightest of hopes.
