Arno Camenisch

The World

Literaturhaus Basel

After twelve books, all set in the Surselva, the protagonist in Arno Camenisch’s latest novel gives a retrospective account of his leaving. Not just a simple act of parting, but a break-out into the world beyond. In his early twenties, full of youthful exuberance and the desire to escape the narrow confines of life already mapped out, he roams from continent to continent, to Hong Kong, Australia and South America in search of something new - love and his own path, against a backdrop of Moby and the Rolling Stones.
