Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Hermann, 37 years old and listless, has his life turned upside-down when his rapier-tongued, usually intoxicated mother is diagnosed with cancer. They embark on a picaresque journey to Amsterdam to get her a special treatment, and to bond over all the booze they can imbibe. Wickedly funny and profound, this is a mother-son novel for the twenty-first century"
