Katharina, a retired veterinarian, inherits a remote manor house northeast of Berlin. The idea was quickly born to set up a community with friends there in order to escape the rising rents in Berlin and not to be alone in old age. In the case of Eva, Katharina's friend, everything initially resists the idea of moving in with people over the age of sixty. But then she gets involved in the experiment and accepts a new beginning.
Das Haus is a poignant and wise social novel in which Monika Maron renegotiates universal themes of life, love and old age.
