die Onleihe der Bibliotheken des Goethe-Instituts e.V.. The Room



With brilliant irony, Andreas Maier describes his uncle J's fraught detachment from the real world and the life of small-town Germany in the years after World War II. "The Room" is both a memoir and a novel, the first installment of an epic family saga, and a love-letter to an unknowable soul.
