The sixth book from one of the most important writers of today Switzerland: a narration about an emigration with retrospection into the past.

The ›report‹ of a woman who’s trying to remember her life looking back on a series of desasters, from childhood, youth, friendship and love until the deepest fall into the nets of psychiatry.


»The phantasmagoria of a childhood that extends to the tragedy of a marriage.« (FAZ)

»The exactness and luminosity of the details, their tendency to tip from the most precise perception to the poetic picture of a fairy tale, that reminds us of Catherine Colomb, the great writer from french Switzerland: both know how to mingle the work of memory with exact observation.« (Beatrice von Matt, NZZ)
