    Adaptation is everything. Inge Lohmark is well aware of that; after all, she's been teaching biology for more than 30 years. But nothing will change the fact that her school is going to be closed in four years: in this dwindling town in the eastern German countryside, there are fewer and fewer children. Inge's husband, who was a cattle inseminator before the reunification, is now breeding ostriches. Their daughter, Claudia, emigrated to the U.S. years ago and has no intention of having children. Everyone is resisting the course of nature that Inge teaches every day in class.

    Nella vita, la concorrenza tra le specie e la capacità di adattamento sono tutto ciò che conta. È questo che insegna ai suoi alunni Inge Lohmark, professoressa di Biologia vecchia maniera, in una sperduta cittadina dell'ex DDR, che con il tasso di natalità a picco non ha più nessuno che abiti le case né bambini da iscrivere a scuola.

    Judith Schalansky ist als "Atlas-Kind" aufgewachsen. Ihre Liebe gilt den kartografischen Werken, die uns die fernen Welten in einer ebenso abstrakten wie ästhetischen Darstellung näherbringen. Hier lädt sie uns auf eine Forschungsreise zu abgelegenen Inseln ein. Es sind unattraktive, unromantische, manchmal gefährliche Inseln, auf denen sich geheimnisvolle, schreckliche oder ungewöhnliche Dinge zugetragen haben. Schalansky hat zu jeder Insel absurd-abgründige Geschichten zusammengetragen.
