Summary (From the publisher):

Richard Schroubeck, a Berlin bookseller in his early thirties, has entered a devastating time in his life. His girlfriend, Hannah, has left him, and Richard does not know why. Introspective, egoistic, and terribly dependent, Richard is sure Hannah will return, if only because he cannot live without her. He quits his job and withdraws to his apartment and a hermit-like existence, pouring out his guilt and hopes in notes, reflections, and observations he intends Hannah to have, an attempt to close the gap created by her absence.
