Whether in subsidized housing in Bern, on a rubber dinghy in the Mediterranean, or in a slum in Cairo’s cemetery city – the seven protagonists of this novel are in transit. They yearn for an arrival, a new home, acceptance, or tranquility. The stories interwoven into the novel show that love is always at the core – even in fleeing war, in a forced marriage, in dealing with painful memories, or in the pressures of self-actualization. Demian Cornu’s debut is about setting off, but also about the hope of someday arriving at a place one may always have remembered, despite never having seen it before.
