Inhalt

Eat, Sleep, No Women

"Wars should be limited to countries with difficult names and difficult climates. This would keep television news announcers from mentioning them and would limit the number of foreign correspondents to a minimum." Margaret Millar in "The Murder von Miranda"


Sunday, 7 October 2001. At 18:27 h local time, the first cruise missiles hits their targets in Kabul, Dandahar and Jalalabad: "America strikes back".

On this fateful Sunday, a billboard painter in Rawalpindi is worried about his wedding day, two men on the Amazon are happy about rising gold prices, an unemployed musician plays saxophone in the Paris subway, a South African miner works an extra shift, an American in China writes a letter to his wife in Ohio, an Egyptian popstar is supposed to sing in Washington...

It is like the story of the butterfly in China, which with a flap of its wings, sets a storm in motion on the other side of the world. Only that one can also view the story from another perspective: falling bombs in Afghanistan can lead to shortcomings of domestic bliss in Paris, closed doors for concert-goers in Washington, a Pakistani woman never seeing her fiancé′s face again, or a woman in Ohio trusting her husband, for no reason at all.
