Der Hausmann is an unconventional novel. Combining traditional and unusual narrative styles, it delineates a story of gentrification and love, poverty and crooked paths, excessive start-up culture, global warming, vegan dog food, doctoral sausage and the Darknet. It is the portrait of a house, a city, a society - a time that still feels like a now that could soon be gone.
