Description

The Story of My Baldness

A Viennese philosophy student Marek van der Jagt tells the story of his quest for l’amour fou. Van der Jagt leads us past a grotesque of characters: his stepmother Eleonore, author of the best-selling How Old Women Can Get Rich; Otto, the Dry Cleaning King of Vienna and the man who holds the key to Marek’s past; the nubile and willing Luxemburgers, Andrea and Milena, who uncover Marek’s darkest secret; Professor Hirschfeld, the collector of criminal dreams; Dr. Ahorn, the plastic surgeon without solutions; and, last but not least, Marek’s own promiscuous mother, who ‘lived to elicit desire the way other people live for their children or to become millionaires…’
