9780810113428: Devotion

Richard Schroubeck, a Berlin bookseller in his early thirties, has entered a devastating time in his life. His girlfriend, Hannah, has left him, and Richard does not know why. Introspective, egotistic, and terribly dependent, Richard is sure Hannah will return, if only because he cannot live without her. He withdraws to his apartment, pouring out his guilt and hopes into writing. For weeks he quits bathing and shaving, and takes a perverse delight in his heroic despair. Though he is certain that absolution will come when Hannah returns, he comes, in time, to realize that the constant writing has become his true devotion.

From the Back Cover:

Richard Schroubeck, a Berlin bookseller in his early thirties, has entered a devastating time in his life. His girlfriend, Hannah, has left him, and Richard does not know why. Introspective, egoistic, and terribly dependent, Richard is sure Hannah will return, if only because he cannot live without her. He quits his job and withdraws to his apartment and a hermit-like existence, pouring out his guilt and hopes in notes, reflections, and observations he intends Hannah to have, an attempt to close the gap created by her absence.

About the Author:

Botho Strauss, one of Germany's most controversial writers, writes of a Germany hobbled by her past and drifting toward dehumanization.
