Wild rabies runs rampant through the woods. The foxes are gaining ground, boldly
making their way into the village. In Dichtersruhe, an insular yet charming haven
stifled by the Swiss mountains, these omens go unnoticed by all but the new parish
priest. The residents have other things on their mind: Literature. Everyone’s a
writer – the nights are alive with reworked manuscripts. So when the devil turns up in
a black car claiming to be a hot-shot publisher, unsatisfied authorial desires are
unleashed and the village’s former harmony is shattered. Taut with foreboding and
Gothic suspense, Paolo Maurensig gives us a refined and engaging literary parable on
narcissism, vainglory, and our inextinguishable thirst for stories.
