Victoria  Grader - Casper’s Global Formula


An unconventional endeavour to understand life and the world

"I have a formula. I haven't tested it yet, but it should work. In short, I will always do the opposite of what I would normally do. Do you understand what I mean?"

Casper is a PhD student in Berlin. He has developed a formula for social interaction. With its help, he can foresee everything that will happen to him. His life becomes predictable and all the joy goes out of it – until he seizes the first opportunity to make a break for it: a series of coincidences takes him to Budapest, where he meets Ilona. With her, Caspar's efforts to anticipate events and people come to nothing. She's a day-dreamer and superficial, and thus his exact opposite. But it's the differences between them that end up helping both to see life in a new way.
