‘Gloomy Delight’ is Michael Lentz’s response to his story collection ‘Muttersterben’, which saw his breakthrough. The 1 000- page novel is a mind-blowing journey into the past and the darkness of the inner self. It tells of his father’s death and leads the writer son into the worst life crisis ever.The narrator is locked in a cell and forced to write a book. It is meant to be the book of all books and to expose everyone through its length alone – those who read it, but above all the person who wrote it. Writing will lead the hero into the moth- er of all catastrophes. Only one thing can save him: he must stop writing.
