«Coming from theatre and being an ex-advertiser Axel Simon has presented a splendid debut with this combination of heimat novel, t mit seiner Kombination aus Heimatroman, picaresque and world saving cinema: Abundant with eccentric characters and queer ideas, written with friendly irony, poetic tenderness and light-footed elegance. An enchanting debut.» (WDR)
