Theo is the nephew of bestselling author Daniel Glattauer. When he was born, his uncle decided he was going to watch this little human being as he grew up and record it all for posterity… The project immediately appealed to Theo and he threw himself into it heart and soul. He gave his first exclusive interview at the tender age of three, and it soon became clear that this was not going to be enough for him. Theo had already experienced far too much to withhold it from the public: his first Easter eggs, the wondrous marvel of the telephone, his debut appearance at the famous Viennese amusement park Prater, animals that float in the water (in other words, fish), and – most spectacularly – the pre-Christmas season in the supermarket. After Theo‘s 14th birthday, they brought the joint project to a dignified conclusion – by swapping roles: this time, Theo got to ask his Uncle Daniel the questions.
Theo is a funny, sensitive, heart-warming book. Once again, it reveals the great skill of an author who observes his fellow human beings closely, and is able to detect even the most subtle sensations.
"Theo, is there anything that you’d be prepared to spend all your pocket money on?"
"No – that’s what I’ve got parents for."
"Have you thought about your future?"
"The future is far away. Let’s talk about it next year."
Daniel Glattauer: I’m really proud to be your uncle.
