Fiction from Dalkey Archive Press
Translated from German

The first novel in Arno Camenisch’s celebrated “alpine” trilogy is set during a single summer. The four main (unnamed) characters are a dairyman, his farmhand, a cowherd, and a swineherd who all live and work in close proximity–but this is no “Heidi.”

Translated by Donal McLaughlin

Theirs is an existence marked by dangerous work, solitude, cruelty, alcoholism, and sheer stubbornness; but the author’s handling of these situations and lives is characterized at all times by affection, surreal humor, and a brilliant ear for the sounds of the setting.
