Thomas Hürlimann: Heimkehr
The new novel by Thomas Hürlimann has been long awaited. And now it is here and has become a life book. Told in his own cheerful narrative voice, Hürlimann nevertheless gives accounts of the most serious matters. When Heinrich Übel regains consciousness after an accident, he finds himself in a hotel in Sicily. He knows who he is but has no idea how he got there. People here also treat him very differently than in his previous life. Has the world changed or has he become someone else?
