Translated from the German.

In a distant universe, since the beginning of time, workers have spent their lives weaving intricate carpets from the hair of women and girls.

But why? Andreas Eschbach's mysterious, poignant space opera explores the absurdity of work and of life itself. 'A novel of ideas that evokes complex emotions through the working out of an intricate and ultimately satisfying plot, with echoes of Gene Wolfe, Ursula K.

Le Guin, and Isaac Asimov' The New York Times Book Review
