Die Verteidigung des Paradieses
416 Pages, gebunden
Heinz really wants to be a good person, but the world he lives in does not allow it. Germany is infected and desolate, mutants roam the streets, the skies are darkened by out-of-control drones. Together with his best friend, an electronic fennec, Heinz grows up in the mountains, amidst a small band of survivors. He vows to save the lost civilization by collecting forgotten words, and writing the history of the last of humanity. But what is the use of Heinz’ art and knowledge? As the group hear a rumour that somewhere in the West, a last refugee camp remains, and they start a murderous trek towards their supposed paradise … Thomas von Steinaecker gives us a breath-taking novel filled with literary virtuosity, radical philosophy, and touching depth.
A novel about the future of our present.
