On the Edge

When the cynical divorce lawyer Thomas Clarin finds himself at a table on the terrace of the Bellavista Hotel beside Thomas Loos, an eccentric, ageing philologist, they strike up an unlikely conversation. Soon Clarin's questions tease out stories from Loos's past, and as both men slowly reveal more of themselves they are forced to question their opinions on love and life. The men are opposites; they intrigue and repel each other. But as the mystery of Loos's past deepens, we begin it wonder if all as it seems.

Markus Werner is a multi-award-winning Swiss author, who published his first novel in 1984. On the Edge is the first of his novels to be translated into English. He has won twelve literary awards and prizes since the publication of his first book, Zündels Abgang.
