By Michalis Patentalis

Nicole Kidman besucht eine dunkle Gefängniszelle - mit fatalen Folgen für den Inhaftierten; ein polnischer Gastarbeiter entdeckt, dass das Jenseits keineswegs frei von Rassismus ist, und ein naives Rotkäppchen erfährt, dass böse Wölfe auch in modernen Zeiten ihr Unwesen treiben. Nachbarschaftsgeheimnisse, verlorene schwarze Ohrringe, oder Augen, die aus dem Aquarium heraus den Raum beobachten sind nur einige Zutaten für diese hintergründig-provokative Lektüre - die mit zielgenauer Metaphorik und zugleich beschwingter Leichtigkeit mal ein entzücktes Lächeln, und mal ein amüsiertes Gelächter auslöst und mit einem ganz neuen Blick auf unsere absurde Gesellschaft verblüfft.

Mittels Traumerlebnissen, verdrehten Perspektiven und abstrus scheinenden Sichtweisen führt er den Leser in eine irrationale Welt: "Alles begann an jenem merkwürdigen Abend. Der Mond, einem riesigen berauschten Auge ähnelnd, versuchte vergeblich seine vorgeschriebene Umlaufbahn um die Erde einzuhalten. Plötzlich ein kleines Stolpern an den Himmelsstufen, und der Mond stürzte in voller Größe in Petes Hirn hinein ..."
