Barbarian Spring
X

On a business trip to Tunisia, Preising, a leading Swiss industrialist, is invited to spend the week with the daughter of a local gangster whom he accompanies to the wedding of two London city traders at an old Berber camp in the desert which has been transformed into a luxury resort. With the wedding party in full swing, the bride riding up the aisle on a camel, the global financial system stands on the brink of collapse. As the wedding guests nurse their hangovers, they learn that the pound has
depreciated tenfold, and their world begins to crumble around them. The Barbarians’ Spring is a credible, probing and refreshingly original satire for our times that explores a culture clash between high finance and the value-system of the Maghreb.

Jonas Lüscher was born in Switzerland in 1976. After working in the German film industry he studied at the Munich School of Philosophy. Currently pursuing his doctoral studies in philosophy at the ETH Zurich, he lives in Munich.
