"For me my Uncle Wanja novel is going to be what 'Ulysses' was for James Joyce." Wladimir Kaminer
Uncle Wanja sees his last hour approaching, and he only wants one thing from his nephew Wladimir: "Before I die, I want to travel the world. Perhaps not the whole world, perhaps just Europe or even only Germany. And in Germany, no more than Berlin. To put it short, please send me an invitation." No sooner said than done. When Uncle Wanja arrives in Berlin, the two of them set off to walk to Wladimir's home. It is a walk through the city at night, with strange meetings and unforgettable observations about life. What is Good, what is Evil? What will at some time remain of us? Why do Uncle's trousers glow in the dark? And where can the best pickled herrings be found?
“The author once again shows why he is popular: humour and a great ability of observation and self-reflection.”
