The Pendulum Swings Back
Sylva Kanderal, author
The events of the past six months play out behind her closed eyes: the funeral of Hermann, the arrest of Joachim Renz, her fear of being a mere observer in her own company where she would have nothing to say, her trip to Congo, the threats by Mrs. Gross, the scandal about Hermann’s weakness for prostitutes and yesterday’s drama in the garage. There are too many negative situations in a short time and Lucia causes none of them. But ironically, she plays the leading role in every section.
