Zbinden's Progress by Christoph Simon
Set in an old folk's home in Switzerland, Lukas Zbinden walks with the aid of a new caregiver, Kazim. As they slowly walk down the stairway, Zbinden tells Kazim of his like as a teacher, as a husband to his now deceased wife, and as a father to his son, Markus. It is at times touching and beautiful and at others clever and witty. It is a quiet book of one man's walk on life's journey.
