The sum of a year, the cross-section of a life, and the adventure of love. A searing new novel by Thomas Glavinic
A year in the life of a writer in Vienna, filled with drugs, alcohol, and women. An adventure that will bring Jonas and Marie, the love of his life, to the south pole. And a thirteen-year-old boy who plays chess as a desperate escape from his life. They are joined by a cast of secondary characters straight from a Tarantino film: a lawyer for the Hell’s Angels, a Wing Chun grand master, and a murderess who cuts up her lovers’ corpses with a chainsaw. Reality meets head-on with the desire for another life. And Thomas Glavinic succeeds in drawing all of these elements together and transforming them into a gripping novel about life’s essential questions: who do I want to be? Where do I want to go? And do I have the courage to make the choices that will take me there?
