Germany in the mid-1980s: An author from Leipzig is given a special visa allowing him to leave East Germany for more than a year. Although the West remains alienating and his beloved desserts him, he does not return. Without any true connection to either his old home or his new environment, he slips into alcoholism and is plagued by writer's block. Lost and disoriented on the ever shifting sands of time, he stumbles into an otherworldly, ghostly terrain – that of his life, his very soul.
An afterword by Julia Franck and unpublished materials showing the genesis of Wolfgang Hilbig's grand autobiographical novel further enrich this volume of the new edition of Hilbig's complete works.
