Description: When German-Australian sailor Friedrich "Fredy" Boettcher is shanghaied aboard a German Navy battleship at the outbreak of World War I, the sight of frenzied mobs burning Armenian women to death in Turkey causes him, through moral shock, to lose his sense of touch. This mysterious disability, which he knows he must hide, is both protection and curse, as he orbits the high horror and low humor of a catastrophic age.

Told in a blue-collar English that regains freshness by eschewing the mind-set of literary language, Fredy's picaresque life -- as, perhaps, the only Nordic Superman ever -- is deep-dyed in layers of irony and attains a mind-inverting resolution.
