This book is filled with thirteen short stories and they all involve a love story one way or another. But, they all seem to end in not the sweet romantic ways you would think. With true love, cheating and even lies. They all seem to fit in together. These short stories wil make you think and feel remorse for some of these characters. I would definitely recommed this book to everyone who doesnt like a typical love story.

Frankly, this book made me feel really stupid. Okay, so that happens to me a lot - I miss the joke and am on the outside looking in. This collection of 13 stories is extremely well written so I was vexed that I couldn't connect the dots.

Were names changed to protect the innocent or was he just playing with the reade ...more

Good collection of short stories--more polished than the St. Petersburg stories, but perhaps a little less inspired. Schulze is fairly unique in his Eastward orientation: his focus remains on East Germany and eastern Europe in general. Although illuminating, I can't unreservedly recommend Schulze: his stories can be quite opaque and it's sometimes quite difficult to see what he's getting at. I'm not sure that it's worth the struggle.

Each of these novellas reads like a novel in its own right. A very good book.
