About this title

Synopsis:

When the cynical divorce lawyer Thomas Clarin finds himself at a table on the terrace of the Bellavista Hotel beside Thomas Loos, an eccentric, ageing philologist, they strike up an unlikely conversation. Soon Clarin's questions tease out stories from Loos' past, and as both men slowly reveal more of themselves they are forced to question their opinions on love and life. The men are opposites; they intrigue and repel each other. But as the mystery of Loos' past deepens, we begin it wonder if all as it seems.

Review:

Markus Werner . . . belongs to the best German-language authors of his generation. --Marcel Reich-Ranicki, Der Spiegel, on the German edition" The miraculous ease with which this novel combines weighty philosophical issues with a gripping story is a rarity in contemporary German literature. --Marion Luhe, Rheinischer Merkur, on the German edition" [On the Edge] appears harmless and then moves your world. --Susanne Schader, Die Presse, on the German edition" On the Edge captivates the reader from the very first line. --Pia Reinacher, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, on the German edition" ["On the Edge"] appears harmless and then moves your world. --Susanne Schader, Die Presse, on the German edition" "On the Edge" captivates the reader from the very first line. --Pia Reinacher, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, on the German edition"
