Die Wand

Marlen Haushofer

Publisher: Mohn Verlag


A woman would like to spend few days in a mountain hunting lodge with her cousin and cousin’s husband. After getting to the lodge, the couple goes for a walk to the closest village and never comes back. The next morning, the woman bangs into a insuperable wall beyond which there is nothing but death. Within the narrow piece of nature surrounded by the invisible wall and isolated from the rest of the world, she prepares for survival in the company of few animals that took refuge in her lodge.
