The reader is plunged into a frenzy of remembrances and fantasies of a mother and her daughter, and risks getting lost in them. The story is set in Leopoldstadt, a district of Vienna steeped in history, where Emilie and her daughter Dora have spent their entire lives – and do so until the very end. A splendid read that raises perception to a another dimension.
»A bold, exciting book which in my opinion even surpasses his début. It is a real liberation that such literature still exists.« (Kurt Neumann)
