Subtil und geheimnisvoll. Bis zum Schluss bleibt die Spannung erhalten, ein veritables Narrativ voller Ungewissheiten. ( )

Das berühmte Bild einer Frau, lange verschollen, taucht plötzlich wieder auf. Überraschend für die Kunstwelt, aber auch für die drei Männer, die diese Frau einst liebten - und sich von ihr betrogen fühlen. In einer Bucht an der australischen Küste kommt es zu einem Wiedersehen: Die Männer wollen wiederhaben, was ihnen vermeintlich zusteht. Nur einer ergreift die Chance, der Frau neu zu begegnen, auch wenn ihnen nicht mehr viel Zeit bleibt

The author's condensed writing style left me wanting more, more description, more padding. It was certainly an easy, quick read, but I felt I was being propelled towards the end, with no time to linger. Unfortunately the story was a bit of a let down. What had I been expecting? I'm not sure, but I didn't find any depth to the plot. Just because you like one book by an author doesn't mean you'll like them all. ( )

A "coming of age" story, but about an elderly man who reconnects with a woman who disappointed him many years ago. As in real life, not everything is neatly explained by the end of the story. But the narrator has enough new information and insight to make changes in his life and relationships in the future. There is a lot more to the story, including an artist and an art collector and the painting of the woman nude descending a staircase, referencing Marcel Duchamp's work.

A quote I liked:
... and then [the Aborigines of Australia] had their children taken away. The taking was well intentioned, it brought tremendous suffering to both parents and children. My wife would have nodded; she liked to say that the opposite of good is not evil, but good intentions. But the opposite of evil is not evil intentions, but good. [p. 32] ( )

The unnamed narrator of Bernhard Schlink’s novel The Woman on the Stairs operates at a safe distance from his feelings. In fact, he has been so successful at keeping his emotions in check that he seems at any moment ready to walk away from everyone and everything in his life. He is a lawyer of late middle age, a widower, working in mergers and acquisitions for a successful international firm based in Germany. In the novel’s opening pages, while on business in Sydney, Australia, and taking a moment to visit the city’s public gallery, he is shocked to come across a painting that played a transformative role early in his life and career. Forty years earlier, as a junior lawyer at the firm where he still works, he found himself in the middle of a dispute between the artist Karl Schwind and businessman Peter Gundlach. The dispute centred on a painting that Schwind had completed of Gundlach’s wife Irene: a nude portrait depicting the beautiful young woman descending a staircase. However, a consequence of the commission was that Irene left her husband for the artist. When the painting was damaged and Gundlach asked Schwind to repair it, Schwind complied, but the animosity between the two got in the way, and the situation escalated until Schwind took legal action in an attempt get the painting back. Our narrator was asked by both parties to draw up a contract, a legally binding (if morally questionable) document that was supposed to settle the matter. However, the exchange never took place and the painting mysteriously disappeared. Forty years later, the narrator’s discovery of the painting on a gallery wall can only mean one thing, and he sets off on a quest to find the painting’s current owner. Schlink’s novel is not a mystery, though a puzzle that has troubled the narrator for years is eventually solved. Instead, it is a graceful and cleverly constructed meditation on several topics, notably art, creativity, legacy, memory, aging, death, and moral responsibility. The main players in the events of 40 years earlier are brought together and spend time discussing their lives and how they feel about what happened. If it all seems somewhat familiar to regular readers of Schlink’s works, that’s because the author has done something like this before. In his 2010 novel, The Weekend, Jorg is released after several decades in prison on terrorism charges, and is taken by his sister to an isolated rural retreat where old friends and relatives have gathered to help him make the transition to life on the outside, and also discuss how they were affected by what happened all those years ago. Schlink is a master of regret. His characters have much to feel guilty about. They’ve all behaved badly. Some grow and learn from their experiences, others continue on the same path as before. What makes his fiction especially fascinating is his ability to construct morally complex scenarios and expose every facet, explore every angle. The characters in The Woman on the Stairs are selfish, often childish, and in other respects not particularly admirable, but everything they do and say makes for compelling drama. ( )
