A Northern Garden

Albert Klein fled Germany in the early 80s because of unrequited love. On his return twelve years later, the place strikes him as even more alien and depressing than before. He hastily moves on to Prague, where he is confronted with a miracle: a second-hand book seller presents him with a blank book promises, ‘Whatever you write in here will come true by the time you have completed the final page.’ Klein can’t resist the temptation of inventing a new story for himself and for Germany.

‘Once upon a time there was a strange park, in the middle of the capital of the Reich. It was surrounded by high walls, and in summer the scent of honeysuckle, lilac and resin drifted over them...’ The banker Albert Klein is the protagonist who creates a park of artists, philosophers, scientists and politicians, to further tolerance and democracy and give his chauvinist, disturbed country a second and more propitious chance. A light-hearted game that becomes more serious as the fatal date draws near: 30th January 1933.
