Identity is something that we all seek'sometimes for our entire lives. Even if we are lucky enough to eventually find it, it doesn't always bring true happiness, and in the end, we inevitably lose it. Relive your quest for identity within the safety of the fictional characters in Tales of Real Life. You'll meet a group of children who enjoy their first drinking experience; a mother who is shaken by the sudden and tragic death of her daughter; a young man who believes in an imagined, mystical wood in order to find happiness in a foreign country; and an old man who is confronted with the loneliness of his age. The stories in the second section of the collection, Tales of the Insane, provide a pleasant escape compared to the identity crisis in Tales of Real Life. A young civil servant recounts the life stories of the bizarre patients of the mental institution at which he's been ordered to work. Inspired by author Harald Waxenegger's precious and tragic childhood recollections and his life experiences, Tales of Real Life and The Insane offers an intriguing glimpse into the quest for identity.
