Schwyz. Uri. Unterwalden.

Schwyz.Uri.Unterwalden. is a book-length contemporary essay recounting an unconventional pilgrimage. The narrator, a foreigner to Switzerland, makes 21 walking trips through the founding cantons of the country in order to encounter the landscapes hidden beneath the common clichés. With every discovery of a canton, the others are cast in a new light, remapping the meanings of each locality. Through extracts of moment by moment experience, the text explores the contours of belonging and the insufficiency of borders which stay in one place. 

This compilation of lyric fragments transcends the conventions of regional literature as it invites the reader to witness a world both familiar and unexpected. The essay becomes a monument to the unique realities and projections which create a place, and to the surprising experiences which might emerge there.

I don`t remember saying it,

but they tell me that

on the day I arrived,

I announced

I would never leave.

This book is a meditation on the materiality of the places that move us. Through an experimentation with the limits of language, the narrator depicts a world as felt through the senses before the stories of meaning begin. In a prose unweighted by narrative appropriation, objects come to life and the reader enters into the spacious realm of presence.
