Description

“His novel recounts an extraordinary love story,” expressed the director of the library where Dr. Blickle’s reading took place. The story is remarkably close to Dr. Blickle’s own world, several sources have noted, as it tells the love story of a literature professor originally from upper Swabia and an American-Jewish violinist. Yet when asked if his wife plays a role in the novel, Blickle replies: “My wife is not a violinist.” Dr. Blickle recounts his narratives in scenic images, rich metaphors of language often purposefully and eloquently mysterious in their tension and struggle. The author explains that his latest novel is about love, about various qualities of love. Soon, the reader also realizes it is a novel deeply rooted in German history and in the human soul, written in sentence fragments, prompting more questions than answers, a sort of Hemingway approach, as one reviewer notes.
