About the book

Amsterdam of the fifties, sixties and seventies. All main characters consider their lives meaningless and try to improve it with their own rituals. For example, Inni Wintrop wants to commit suicide in his toilet because his horoscope forecasted that his wife would run away with another man, and he, zodiac sign lion, would then commit suicide. It was an apt prophecy. But then the rope snapped.
