„Was haben Sie eigentlich verbrochen, dass Sie als Pfleger hier arbeiten müssen?“ fragt die schizophrene „Fürstin von Hammerschlag“ den Erzähler und Protagonisten in einer der humorvollsten Geschichten dieses Buches.

In Mosers wahren Geschichten werden Facetten des Menschlichen sichtbar, die uns teils sehr nachdenklich stimmen, teils die Lachtränen in die Augen treiben.

Gerhard Moser, geboren 1955 in Offenburg, machte 1972 die Ausbildung zum Altenpfleger. Nach seinem Examen battle er in verschiedenen Pflegeheimen und Kliniken in München, Heidelberg, Stuttgart und am Bodensee tätig. quickly 14 Jahre lebte er im Oberbergischen Kreis, wo er nach eight Jahren Tätigkeit in der Psychiatrie einen privaten Pflegedienst aufbaute.
