Content

The city of Passau, situated on three rivers, is not only the scene, but the actual protagonist of this story. The town displays itself to the reader as an area full of voices and images of various centuries among which the hero of this book tries to determine the origins of his own history. Obsessed by the idea that even the actions of a medieval missionary or the drapery of a wooden Madonna might have something to do with his life, the author strolls through town combining observations, recollections and historical facts to a well composed, very beautiful story.
