Sample text

Die Sargträger bewegten sich ehrerbietig mit angemessen betrübtem Lächeln, Antoine konnte sich kaum auf den Beinen hal­ ten, die anderen trugen eine den Umständen ent­ sprechende Miene zur Schau, mein Vater biss die Zähne aufeinander. Ich weiß nicht, was ihn plötz­ lich trieb, seinen Bruder auf dem Betonvorplatz zu schlagen, dass diesem das Blut aus der Nase spritzte.
