Adolf Muschg “Die japanische Tasche”
After Sax and Löwenstern, Swiss author and George Büchner Prize winner Adolf Muschg has now released his latest novel. The protagonist is Beat Schneider, an eccentric yet groundbreaking historian. Schneider, though, has done something unforgivable which costs him his marriage with LouAnne. She is an exceptional graphic artist who not only needs his love, but depends on his support. So the Japanese bag that LouAnne gave him is even more precious. He never lets it out of his sight—until one day he loses that too. Adolf Muschg’s new novel not only addresses such themes as friendship and love, parting and loss, and the enigmatic bonds in the people’s lives, but also the power of fairy tales. Introduced by Steffen Martus, literary scholar and author of a biography of the Brothers Grimm.
