From the publisher

Translated by Anthea Bell

Roland, a young student at a new university, meets an inspirational teacher who sweeps him into his world of literature and learning. When the boy moves into the same building as the teacher and his wife, he becomes ever closer to this remarkable man, though he also senses his mentor pulling away from him – sometimes even seeming to hate him. But the truth about these feelings is something that will shape both men for the rest of their lives.
