[sic] is Latin and is used in connection with quotes and indicate words that are either spelt or used wrongly. The author portrays three young big city youngsters’ communication problems and mutual misunderstandings: Theo is a composer and has to write a commercial jingle for a new rollercoaster in an amusement park. His aim is to compose something really boring so the ride will seem more exciting. Babette, an unemployed academic has big plans about publishing a compendium describes the 20th century’s history based on misplaced verbal outbursts from political leaders worldwide. Frank is consumed with a letter curse with books and tapes about how to become an auctioneer. The three neighbours fly in and out of each other’s lives and flats. This way, a don-quixotic threesome is created based on mistrust, unreturned love, loneliness and borrowed money. The language gathers in some kind of verbal kaleidoscope of words and phrases clinging together only to be whirled around and manifest in new constellations.
