Richard David Precht's wonderful love story: a book full of humour and affection, a book about love, freedom and a new beginning.
While in a tram, Georg conquers the heart of an unknown woman – Rosalie. Before long, the two lovers move to Berlin where, for a short moment after the fall of the Wall and reunification, everything seems possible. While far up in space one last Soviet cosmonaut is orbiting the earth in the last Soviet space capsule, Georg and Rosalie explore the city as if it were a strange planet and just let themselves drift. But the weightlessness does not last for ever and it is not long before the two star counters have to face up to the new age.
“Precht's novel, which artfully links human history and natural history, is a gentle probing into the soul of a whole generation.”
