    One day, 14-year-old Sophie Amundsen comes home from school to find two notes in her mailbox, with one question on each: "Who are you?" and "Where does the world come from?" From that irresistible beginning, Sophie becomes obsessed with questions that take her far beyond what she knows of her Norwegian village. Through those letters, she enrolls in a kind of correspondence course, covering Socrates to Sartre, with a mysterious philosopher, while receiving letters addressed to another girl.

    Jakop is a lonely man. Divorced from his wife, with no friends apart from his constant companion Pelle, he spends his life attending the funerals of people he doesn't know, obscuring his identity in a web of improbable lies. As his addiction to storytelling spirals out of control, he is forced to reconcile his love of language and stories with the ever more urgent need for human connection. An Unreliable Man is a moving and thought-provoking novel about loneliness and truth, about seeking a place in the world and about how language and storytelling give our lives meaning.

But he can find nothing wrong with Anna; in fact he believes there may be some truth to what she is seeing. Anna is haunted by visions of the desolate world of 2082. She sees her great-granddaughter, Nova, in a wasteland peopled by ragged survivors, after animals and plants have died out.

    "Chi sei?", bella e inquietante domanda, soprattutto se a fartela è un biglietto anonimo lasciato nella tua buca delle lettere. Questo è ciò che accade a Sofia Amundsen, ragazzina norvegese ancora capace di stupirsi di fronte al mondo e ai suoi abitanti. Dalla caduta nel mondo dell'ovvio viene salvata grazie all'intervento del bislacco filosofo Alberto Knox, con i suoi messaggi recapitati dal cane Hermes, i travestimenti, i quesiti apparentemente senza senso e le metafore esilaranti.

So entziffert Joachim mit jedem Adventstag die unglaubliche Geschichte eines Pilgerzugs, der fast zweitausend Jahre zurückreicht - bis zur Geburt des Jesuskindes in Bethlehem.
