(From the publisher):
The themes of absence pervade all the works in this unsettling, unusual collection. In The Poster
, a German bank director, strolling through a park in Vienna, adds his name to a list of missing persons, thereby writing himself out of his humdrum life. Boarding a train to Venice, his travels intersect with that of a hooded stranger. The New Tenant
mesmerizes the old concierge, with his mysterious comings and goings. And in In Defence of Nothingness
, the illness of a talented boy and the lack of communication within a family, ends in a horrific climax.
