Absprunghöhen: Erzählungen (German Edition) by Johannes Wally

By Johannes Wally

Ein Statistiker, der ein rätselhaftes Zeichen auf seiner Wohnungstür entdeckt. Ein politischer Flüchtling, der fischen geht. Eine Human Ressource Managerin, die eine fehlerhafte Waage reklamieren will: Irritiert von banalen Begebenheiten brechen die Protagonisten dieses Erzählbandes zu äußeren wie inneren Reisen auf und sehen sich schließlich mit der Möglichkeit konfrontiert, von ihrem Leben abzuspringen.

Mit viel Sinn für Ironie erzählt Johannes Wally vom ganz alltäglichen Gelingen und Scheitern, von psychologischen Verstrickungen und ökonomischen Zwängen. Ergänzt werden die Erzählungen von Kürzestgeschichten, die mithilfe absurder Überzeichnung die Themen der Erzählungen aufnehmen und variieren.
