"Peter Henning counts as a promising representative of contemporary German literature." Die Presse am Sonntag

Katharina Weskott is approaching fifty and is eying this event with mixed feelings. Will her life, will her whole perception of herself change after this turning point? How will others see her? Feeling she needs to step back a little and also to give the occasion a little grandeur, she and her husband invite three couples they are on friendly terms with to spend the weekend with them in a luxury hotel in Zandervoort in the Netherlands.

In a fast-paced change of perspective, the novel unfurls the stories of eight people, each one of whom is at a crossroads, driven by the questions: What is still possible? Will I be able to make a new start? Or am I in for a social downturn?

"Peter Henning counts as a promising representative of contemporary German literature."
