THE DOG, THE NIGHT AND THE KNIFE
by Marius Von Mayenburg, Translated by Maja Zade
A hot August night. M finds himself at the dead end of a dark and deserted street, where everything has decayed and time has stopped. Hurled into a nightmare world, where wolves prowl, hunger is everywhere, and nothing is quite what it seems, M does the only logical thing: he runs.
His flight through this land of blood and dust, flesh-eating seductresses and talking dogs forces him to confront his very existence, and as dawn approaches M realises…This is one nightmare he may never awake from.
