Roman Markus’s Thingy, or Tomorrow we turn to dust is a »pretty good summer novel full of wit, drive and frenzied action.« (Jenaer Stadtmagazin)
Encounters with people and places, temporary breaks from the loneliness, in Zurich and Graz, on Mont Ventoux and in the Slovenian karst are the central elements in these fourteen narratives.
In his first novel, Stefan Schmitzer takes the reader to troublesome spots in our cities, our social lives: hardship, violence, lack of perspectives – the perfect conditions for a very special action movie.
»This novel is staggeringly beautiful. It keeps soliciting the reader’s empathy and shows once more the complexity, and above all fragility, of the human soul.« (Gerlinde Tamerl, Der Standard)
