Rolf Bauerdick was born in Germany, 1957. This is his first novel.
Fabulous... This bizarre and anarchistic book is enormously entertaining and deservedly successful... Since Bernard Schlink no German novelist has received nearly as much international attention * Die Welt *
A dazzling book, larger than life, exuberantly picturesque... German literature has a new powerful voice - and most of all an unusual one * Focus *
Rolf Bauerdick is a natural born narrator. The fierce realism of his story spoils neither its magic nor its humour * Der Spiegel *
