"Zbinden invites comparison with Leo Tolstoy's Ivan Ilych."—Alexander Starritt, The Times Literary Supplement

Lukas Zbinden leans on the arm of his carer in an old people's home. Step by step, the devoted walker recounts his life with his late wife and his son. She loved nature walks; he loved city streets. What was the secret of their lifelong love? And why is it so hard for him to talk to his son? A life-affirming novel about love.

Christoph Simon was born in 1972 in Switzerland. After travels through the Middle East, Poland, South America, London, and New York, he settled in Bern, Switzerland.
