About this book
The long-awaited second novel by the author of the controversial "Politics", which was translated into 30 languages. At the end of the 20th century, 78-year old Haffner finds himself harried by his family, women, bureaucrats and the Mafia as he tries to claim his inheritance.
In a spa town snug in the Alps, at the end of the twentieth century, the 78-year-old Haffner is seeking a cure, redress, more women; and ignoring the will of his wife. He is there to claim her inheritance: a villa on the outskirts of a forgotten spa town. But Haffner never does what he is told.
