Albuquerque tells classical short stories.

The new boy executes the most perfect cannonball of all time in the pool and disappears without trace. An owl heals the fears of a bus driver. In Albuquerque, an old soccer coach waits for a hip replacement. Amateur radio operator Muffe is beaten up. And while Budde works in the cold storage room of a meat factory, it begins to snow.

Florian Wacker tells classical short stories in the tradition of American writers such as William Faulkner or Richard Yates. On a direct way, Wacker gives his characters a veritable voice, which can be sad, serious, political and humorous.
