Alberto Manguel’s novel »Zwei Liebhaber des Schattens« (tr. Two Lovers of the Shadows) places two short novels side by side: In the first novel, man has a strange love of human skin which he constantly photographs. But the object of his desire eludes him and he becomes consumed by his obsession. The second novel strikes a political note. Here, victims of a dictatorship exist as the undead, as memories which tear lives apart.
