Love stories are a genre to which Adolf Muschg has devoted himself over forty years. They know no boundaries in space and time. They are set in the hills of New Zealand as well as on a latifundia in Argentina. They take place against the backdrop of a Swiss mountain village and in the more anonymous space of a contemporary big city. They are about love between man and woman, about the love of friends and children, abut incest, and again and again: about love in its most intricate or even deformed form, about guilt, powerlessness, failure, revolt, violence. Captured in an expressive tone or jotted down with the objectivity of a journalist, these stories showcase Muschg’s breadth and versatility.
