Seitenbereiche:


Inhalt:

An old man close to death. A suspicious stranger on the stairs. The sounds of the endless night unsettle him, triggering images, questions and memories - the impressions of the day just past and his life. The old man wracks his brain over why he inherited the building he now lives in, why he left the city that was his home for so long: Is he here voluntarily? What brought the stranger here? Why were the butcher and the pub landlord nailing together a new door out in the backyard that morning? His precise observations tell a story that seems strangely interwoven with the story of his life, at its centre his own war guilt. The old man's wish to solve the puzzle of the stranger's identity is to be his last task in life. The German orginal of "What Darkness Was" won the Ingeborg Bachmann Prize in 2003.
