Description
"Austrian author and playwright [Gert] Jonke addresses a host of existential questions through a cast of vaudevillian compatriots in this slim, beautifully written volume. When narrator Fritz, a self-loathing, depressive alcoholic composer, arrives early to help set up the annual garden party thrown by his friends, photographer Anton and his sister, Johanna, everything looks eerily familiar. As Fritz busies himself, Johanna reveals Anton's farcical if slightly malevolent plan to create an exact replica of last year's party. The plan is a success, allowing Jonke to wryly send up Austrian society and muse provocatively on the nature of memory."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
