Seltsames (Kammer)stück - zwei Männer treffen sich, trinken ziemlich viel miteinander, reden viel zu ausgiebig über sehr private Sachen um am Ende fest zu stellen: der eine hat die ganze Zeit gelogen, zumindest teilweise, aber auch wahrscheinlich wesentlich. Wie viel davon war Wahrheit, was waren seine Motive, warum hat seine Rache, falls es eine war, so eine seltsame Form angenommen, wie wird das alles enden oder weiter gehen, und - seit wann reden Männer so miteinander? Die Fragen bleiben unbeantwortet, das Buch eine Persönlichkeitsbeobachtung. Die Sprache gefiel mir, ihre verschobene Blumigkeit und altmodischer Charme haben mich angesprochen. ( )

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

A psychological drama with a masterful, pulse-quickening plot revolving around two seemingly very different men, who have more in common than they know. Thomas Clarin is a divorce lawyer whose profession has fostered a deep and abiding distrust of marriage, preferring instead to 'play the field.' Thomas Loos is a somber widower intensely mourning his wife's death. With Clarin's flirtatious, roving eye and Loos' complete disenchantment with the world around him, it would seem these men had nothing in common between them. But after a fateful meeting in a crowded Swiss restaurant, the two strike up a conversation that unearths unnerving coincidences.… (more)
