From Publishers Weekly:

An unhappily married German couple is on vacation in Sicily--"a meticulously detailed journey through a hell the reader may often be anxious to leave." In a dusty, desolate town, the couple's car breaks down, and they witness the spectacle of a beautiful boy's suicide from a tower. PW likened this tale to the sun at midday: "harsh, pitiless, burning and relentless."
