Kleinzeit



A richly strange and funny novel follows one man grappling with love, life and creativity

On a day like any other, Kleinzeit gets fired. Hours later he finds himself in hospital with a pair of adventurous pyjamas and a mysterious 'skewed hypotenuse'. Here he falls instantly in love with a beautiful night nurse called Sister. Armed only with a Glockenspiel and a copy of Thucydides' The Peloponnesian War, together they are pitched headlong into a series of wild metaphysical adventures.

Kleinzeit. In German that means 'hero'. Or maybe 'smalltime'. It depends who you ask.
