Behind the Station

Arno Camenisch
Translated by Donal McLaughlin

The second book of Arno Camenisch’s Alp trilogy is told through the eyes of two young brothers growing up in a small, secluded village in a valley flanked by the alpine mountains. Written in the same style as The Alp, we start to believe there is little difference between the children and the adults in this village, save for their love of mischief and ghost stories. The grandmother, the parents, and the neighbors: this world is an amphitheater full of drama, somehow colored through the eyes of children. Camenisch’s quiet control and powerful descriptions of village life prove he is an international voice to follow.
