In the middle of 1995, Paul Gilk and his wife Susanna (Juon) learn that Susanna’s elderly mother is ailing. Their six-week visit to Susanna’s native Switzerland to see Mama becomes, in the winter of 1996, a life-changing event for Paul, as he becomes immersed in a world very different from his native Wisconsin.

The author’s fascination and frustration with his wife’s native language–Schweitzerdeutsch, a German dialect–is an often hilarious theme in the book.

Throughout this Swiss journal runs a picture of a beautiful country, political, historical and geographic, sprinkled with the author’s philosophical ponderings and wry observations.
