Capitalism is a vast country.
Life is merely a chance and Georg Asamer has grabbed it: He made it as the boss of a highly successful advertisement agency. After he appoints Andy Sykora as his successor, he recognizes that he has become old – business strategies have changed. Hans Falenbruck, a random acquaintance of Sykora and heir to a large pharmaceutical enterprise, has kept up with the times: He travels to Vienna in order to conquer the Eastern European market. Then there is Irma Wonisch, Falenbruck’s old flame from a good family, who gets together with Tom Loschek. The aspiring broker sparks a sense of adventure in all of them with his appealing investment ideas…
Peter Rosei leads us into the heart of a world where – at times by chance, yet always inevitably –destructive wishes and high hopes collide. “Geld!” is a laconically fascinating book, a sharp witted puzzle with comedic undertones.
Peter Rosei was born in Vienna in 1946. He read law at university. One of his subsequent positions was as secretary to the artist Ernst Fuchs. He has lived in Vienna since 1972 and is the recipient of many awards, including the Franz Kafka Prize in 1993, the Anton Wildgans Prize in 1999 and, in 2007, the Austrian Cross of Honour for Science and Art.
