About this book
A spellbinding collection of short stories by one of Austria's most critically acclaimed authors. Hotschnig's writing is often compared to Franz Kafka and Thomas Bernhard, and is a fan of the absurd plot - normal events slip into drama before tipping into the surreal.
A man becomes obsessed with observing his neighbours. A large family gathers for Christmas only to wait for the one member who never turns up. An old woman lures a man into her house where he finds dolls resembling himself as a boy. Mesmerizing and haunting stories about loss of identity in the modern world.
