A child's-eye view of a family in decline, Luck combines humour and suspense with a heartbreaking pathos. This is the story of a nuclear family: father, mother, daughter and son. But all is not as it seems, for Mother is in love with Herr Herkenrath, and now father and son will have to leave home. Or will they? The mother sits in her room, squirting herself with perfume, waiting for her new man to arrive and her old one to go. Everyone makes their own luck in this life! she tells her children. The father sits in his room, planning another novel. Why doesn't his writing sell? Is it just bad luck? The little sister is the lucky one: she gets to stay at home. But maybe it's the son who is the lucky one: he gets to go. But will anybody really leave? Only time will tell, but time is running out. The removal van is on its way.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The most singular writer to come out of Germany since Heinrich Boll" The Times; "An extraordinarily striking novel, tense, horror with a breeze of humour, almost embarrassingly honest and frank" Grace Ingoldby, New Statesman of The Spectacle at the Tower; "The ironic naivete of the child heroes makes Hofmann's description of a wrecked provincial town humid with unarticulated doom... the effect is mesmerising" Robert Winder, Independent of Our Conquest
