    When he falls ill on his way home from school, 15-year-old Michael Berg is rescued by Hanna, a woman twice his age. In time she becomes his lover--then she inexplicably disappears. When Michael next sees her, he is a young law student, and she is on trial for a hideous crime. As he watches her refuse to defend her innocence, Michael gradually realizes that Hanna may be guarding a secret she considers more shameful than murder.

    Anziehungs- und Fluchtformen der Liebe in sieben Geschichten: als unterdrückte Sehnsüchte und unerwünschte Verwirrungen, als verzweifelte Seitensprünge und kühne Ausbrüche, als unumkehrbare Macht der Gewohnheit, als Schuld und Selbstverleugnung. Die Protagonisten sind dabei in ihre Zeit verstrickt: Die deutsche Vergangenheit holt einen jungen Mann da ein, wo man es am wenigsten erwartet - in der Liebe zu einem Bild.

    The truth is, as a character in this provocative new collection puts it, "passionate, beautiful, and hideous, it can make you happy and it can torture you, and it's always liberating." In "After the Season", a man of humble means falls quickly in love with a woman belonging to a much elevated financial status and wrestles with his feelings and his beliefs about the rich. A son takes his distant father to a Bach festival in "Johann Sebastian Bach on Ruegen" only to learn that perhaps he was the one who was never really present in their relationship. And in "The Night in Baden-Baden" a man who's caught in a lie changes his ways.

    For decades the painting was believed to be lost. But just as mysteriously as it disappeared, it reappears, an anonymous donation to a gallery in Sydney. The art world is stunned, but so are the three men who loved the woman in the painting - the woman on the stairs. One by one they track her down to an isolated cottage in Australia. Here they must try to untangle the lies and betrayals of their shared past - but time is running out.
