All Dag verstoppt en aneren (One Day Hides Another)
Every day, the one before and the one after, every day is everyday: a day of reminiscences of the past and a day of anticipations of the future. Every day something transpires. In these nine short stories by Gast Groeber, we discover all kinds of people who live a day that changes their everyday life. Groeber's texts mirror modern Luxembourg, whatever the setting. Written in an innovative style, Groeber's third book confirms his ability to depict Luxembourgish reality in a masterful way.
