Summary
"West Germany, 1988. The journalist Jonathan Fabrizius is leading a comfortable existence with his girlfriend Ulla in Hamburg, bankrolled by his uncle. When a luxury-car company invites him to travel through the People's Republic of Poland and write about the route for an upcoming car rally, Jonathan, a war orphan from former East Prussia--now Poland--has no interest in the job. But as his relationship with Ulla sours, the journey to his birthplace becomes enticing. What follows is a darkly comic road trip, a queasy misadventure of West German tourists in Communist Poland, and a reckoning that is by turns subtle, satiric, and genuine"--Page 4 of cover
