Overview
A stunning tour de force, Man in the Holocene constructs a powerful vision of our place in the world by combining the banality of an aging man s lonely inner life and the objective facts he finds in the books of his isolated home. As a rainstorm rages outside, Max Frisch s protagonist, Geiser, watches the mountain landscape crumble beneath landslides and flooding, and speculates that the town will be wiped out by the collapse of a section of the mountain. Seeking refuge from the storm in town, he makes his way through a difficult and dangerous mountain pass, only to abandon his original plan and return home. A compelling meditation by one of Frisch s most original characters, Man in the Holocene charts Geiser s desperate attempt to find his place in history and in the confusing and fragile world outside his window."
