The novel was awarded with the 2014  White Ravens Prize.

Martin and his mother (a hippie-punk artist, as his son likes to call her), move together into a squat.

Many families live there, and Martin befriends Vladi, an orphan boy who is building a racing go-kart.

Meanwhile, Martin’s mother thinks about giving the old house a new, artistic flair, suggesting to the other occupants painting the whole building.

In this moving novel, Martin faces what his friend Vladis calls “detachment”— the experience of seeing something which is familiar to us, but giving it a new and fresh glance.
