The novel by Andrej Nikolaidis consists of only one sentence. But it has it all: it explores the inner life of Joe, a writer, war refugee and doomed genius, who wants to commit suicide. Before his death, Joe has one last request: his friend needs to bring the mysterious last manuscript of philosopher Walter Benjamin to a collector. The work is a forgery, but the friend nevertheless sets off. He takes the reader with him on the train journey from Budapest to Vienna, but above all on a restless journey through his mind: to Joe, whom he adores, and to a Europe of the displaced and dispossessed.
