(From the publisher):
As a small Austrian town prepares for its 1000-year jubilee, the quiet life of Roswitha, a 42-year-old tailor, is completely disrupted. There is dust and dirt everywhere because the outside of the building she lives in is being resurfaced. In the midst of the noise and chaos, one of the construction workers introduces himself and quickly moves in with her. Roswitha has to deal with escalating episodes of drunkeness and vandalism. She has almost decided that Max will have to go, when his friends and hers crowd into her apartment to watch a sensational event across the way. As the event drags on through the night and into the next day, the situation in the apartment becomes increasingly intolerable. By the time the crisis outside is resolved, two people lie dead in Roswitha's apartment.
