(From the publisher):
Four adults, a child and a cat travel from Germany to Bordeaux. Harig tells their adventures in humorous permutations, word-games, Baroquisms, confrontations, catalogs: anything but straightforward narrative. He even rings the changes on snippets of philosophical discourse lifted from Montaigne — who was once mayor of Bordeaux and whose motto, “What do I know?,” is perhaps the real location all the fun takes us to. It’s a riotous tale, with just enough of a narrative thread to keep us reading. And exhilarated.
