Nichts als Himmel
Peter Henisch returns to his place of longing, San Vito, to the hidden flat under the roofs of the small Italian town. It becomes a refuge for Paul Spielmann, who flees Vienna to escape the pandemic and a life crisis. Until suddenly a man comes over the rooftops, one of the refugees from Africa. Paul takes him in and helps him. In his new novel, Peter Henisch combines a southern idyll with political topicality and tells the story of an unusual friendship.
