Content

Heinrich Übel crashes into the railing of a bridge above a Swiss lake in his borrowed American road cruiser. When he comes round, he finds himself on a Sicilian beach. He knows who he is but has no idea how he got there. The people in the small coastal town treat him differently than those from his former life. He, who used to be a rather unlucky fellow, is suddenly a hero and a ladies’ man. But has the world around him changed, or has he? What really happened on the bridge above the lake?

Thomas Hürlimann writes about the most weighty and seri- ous things – in the lightest and cheeriest way imaginable.
