The darkest subject matters – violent crime (‘Blood pink and the 8th Dwarf’), suicide (‘Pin again Your Ears and Smile’) and the spectre of incest (‘Terror via Torchlight’) – are tempered through the sunshine (‘If Horses may perhaps Talk’, ‘Old Lady’s Dream’, ‘Crown for the Coronet’). yet even within the lightest, darkness lurks.
No personality in those stories – the overzealous cop in ‘Sweet Transvestite’, the brutal husband in ‘Cutting Board Killer’, the mysterious guy at the run in ‘Strangers on a aircraft’ – will cease to sniff the roses.

Jouer des rôles mais rester en coulisses, être là mais ailleurs, se donner mais se voir et se perdre dans ce jeu de regards. .. l. a. comédie humaine, le jeu des dîners entre amis, l’affliction familiale, les révoltes sabordées, los angeles culpabilité, los angeles solitude, los angeles liberté et l’étouffement : se rencontrent des fragments de vie qui s’efforcent de donner du sens, malgré los angeles mélancolie et le mal-être.
Traumwandlerisch, mit halb geschlossen Augen erzählend, biegt Stefan Kraschon da ab, wo keine Kurve ist. Hinter Alltäglichem liegen ungeheuerliche, zarte und manchmal sarkastische Geheimnisse.
