Das weiße Schloss
Ada and Yves are a happy couple. They’ve decided to have a child, but they fear the incompatibility of love, career and education. That’s why they’re participating in the prestigious White Castle Project in which surrogate mothers deliver and raise foreign parents’ children on a completely organic and fair-trade basis. Parenting is a profession here, supervised and directed by an all-controlling machine. The offspring can be visited at any time. Over a period of nine months, the novel tells the story of the couple’s journey to parenthood while following the changes in their self-image and relationship. It asks questions of our time: When is a bond a loss of freedom? What is family? Are the traditional role models of mother and father negotiable?
