Description

A child's-eye view of a family in decline, Gert Hofmann's Luck mixes humour and suspense with a heartbreaking pathos. This is the story of a nuclear family- father, mother, daughter and son. But all is not as it seems, for the mother is in love with Herr Herkenrath, and now father and son will have to leave home. Or will they? Mother sits in her room, waiting for her new man to arrive and her old one to go. Father sits in his room, planning another novel. The little sister is the lucky one- she gets to stay at home. But the son won't have to put up with Herr Herkenrath's annoying habits and his smelly feet. So maybe he's lucky to be going. Only time will tell, but time is running out. The removal van is on its way.
