Moshe liebt Nana und Nana liebt Moshe. Und sie versuchen ihr bestes und alles. Aber das reicht nicht. Dann kommt Anjali hinzu. Anjali ist Nanas Freundin. Sie ist sehr schön.

Aber so einfach, wie sie sich das alles vorgestellt haben ist es gar nicht. Adam Thirlwell inszeniert meisterlich ein extravagantes Rollenspiel zwischen Leser, Erzähler und Protagonisten. Spielerisch, verwegen und mit beeindruckender stilistischer Eleganz verbindet er Elemente der großen Literatur des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts. »Ein faszinierender Roman, der Ihre sofortige Aufmerksamkeit verdient.« The Independent
