Content: People are abducted, disappear, are imprisoned or tortured. Amy works for a private security service, she can only guess at the corruption and violence that looms as the abyss behind the secret operations. When she decides to quit, she finally falls into the clutches of an opaque but brutal organization. Amy's forlornness corresponds with her struggle to perceive reality. What can she believe? Who is she herself? And above all: what happened on the day she can't remember?
In her masterful novel, Marlene Streeruwitz creates an eerie and unforgettable scenario and questions the place of the individual in an increasingly privatized public sphere.

Marlene Streeruwitz was born in Baden near Vienna, studied Slavic studies and art history and began her career as a director and author of plays and radio plays. She has received numerous awards for her novels, most recently the Droste Prize and the Peter Rosegger Literature Prize.
