About this title

Synopsis:

A city with deteriorating houses. A pristine house seemingly without inhabitants. Inhabitants of a world no longer human. In this remarkable collection of stories, Ernst-Wilhelm Händler transports us to a place where nothing is quite as we know it. Händler creates a series of possible worlds, some resembling those we experience on a regular basis, others existing in startling opposition to everyday life.

From the Back Cover:

A city with deteriorating houses. A pristine house seemingly without inhabitants. Inhabitants of a world no longer human. In this remarkable collection of stories, Ernst-Wilhelm Händler transports us to a place where nothing is quite as we know it. Händler creates a series of possible worlds, some resembling those we experience on a regular basis, others existing in startling opposition to everyday life. Narrated by businessmen, a philosopher, a prostitute who has undergone a sex change, and an old woman suffering from Alzheimer's, these stories unfold through experiments in thought, language, and voice that illustrate, reflect on, and reconfigure the problems that shape and unsettle our lives.
First published in German in 1995, City with Houses announced the arrival of a major talent. Although at home in many spheres, Händler writes as a literary outsider. His unusual perspective shakes us from the slumber of our own houses and awakens us to the realities, the possibilities, and the wonders of our day.
