Summary
"This monumental novel about an anguished East German writer interrogates with bitter wit the detritus of late twentieth-century life: alcoholism, car culture, consumerism, God, love, statelessness, and above all else, the writer's place in a "century of lies.""-- Provided by publisher.
From a writer whose work is considered "among the most significant prose and poetry written not just in the GDR but in all of postwar Germany" (Joshua Cohen), a digressive masterwork in the tradition of Heinrich Böll, Imre Kértesz, and Dasa Drndic that interrogates lust, God, statelessness, addiction, capitalism, and above all else the writer's place in "a century of lies."
