Thomas Pregel documents the labor market experiences of his protagonists and offers deep insights into the rigid life of three academics living on the state welfare program Hartz IV. Through diary entries and sharp observations of the office apparatus and the absurd bureaucratic traps the value of man is questioned. This novella about Hartz is a sarcastic account of our fast-paced and sensation-hungry society.
