Alban Nikolai Herbst


The tourist liner — the "dreamship", as the narrator of this story calls it — cruises the Indian and Atlantic Oceans. But for a person who is fascinated by this voyage and has not gone ashore for a long time, the point of arrival will be death…

Once again, now at the beginning of the XXI century, in a novel that has absorbed the experience of modernism, postmodernism and post-postmodernism (the creator of which is considered to be its author, Alban Nikolai Herbst), a sea voyage appears before us as a capacious metaphor of human life, known since the ancient Egyptian "Tales of the Castaway" and Homer's "Odyssey".

The translation of this book was carried out with the support of the Goethe Institute.
