Schweizer Geschichten

Urs Widmer

Publisher: Diogenes


The narrator floats in a balloon over the land of his compatriots, landing here and there in various cantons. He tells of Swiss family life, of the inns, of original characters and track keepers, ski tourists and lovers. A ludicrous panorama of Swiss perversions, and a very poetic declaration of love for a – albeit utopian – Switzerland.
