Author(s): Daniel Kehlmann
From the internationally best-selling author of Measuring the World and F, an eerie and supernatural tale of a writer's emotional collapse
A screenwriter, his wife, and their four-year old daughter rent a house in the mountains of Germany, but something isn't right. As he toils on a sequel to his most successful movie, the screenwriter notices that rooms aren't where he remembers them--and finds in his notebook words that are not his own.
Kehlmann is one of the brightest, most pleasure-giving writers at work today, and he manages all this while exploring matters of deep philosophical and intellectual import. Jonathan Franzen Daniel Kehlmann is one of the great novelists for making giant themes seem light Adam Thirlwell
