Marie Gamillscheg takes the reader into a gradually disappearing world.

Multi-facetted and insidious, her debut speaks of a common fate in the shadow of a large mountain and of the glory within both demise and new beginnings.

Deep inside the mouth of the mountain something is stirring – and everyone in the village can feel it. The innkeeper Susa for example, who can feel it whilst unscrewing the pumps from the ketchup-buckets at night in the ‘Espresso’. Or the old Wenisch, her last regular customer. Even the mayor, if he doesn’t happen to be at the health resort. But silent Martin was the first to feel it, until one day, he lost control of his car. It feels as though the mountain were trembling, as if it were going to collapse at any moment. For young Teresa and newcomer Merih the matter is clear: She wants to finally leave this decrepit place, however he is looking for a new beginning – here, of all places.

Marie Gamilscheg, born 1992 in Graz. Lives in Berlin and works as an independent journalist for ZEIT Campus amongst others. 2015 she won a literature grant from Graz and the New German Fiction Prize amongst others.
