(From the publisher):
Takes place in a city square where more than four hundred characters pass by one another without speaking a single word. Handke here journeys to the brink of speach: Who is that person passing by? Is she on her way, or is she coming back? Is her story ahead of her, or is it behind? In the silence of the square, Handke returns the gift of speech, the magic of telling a story, to the spectator.
