"Theodor is our father. He claims that he brought himself up, without anybody’s help." This is the start of the bizarrely titled new novel by Antonia Baum. Theodor is an impossible father, who clearly has no intention of bringing up his three children in a conventional way. On the contrary. Fast-paced and funny, Baum’s tale moves between describing the siblings’ catastrophic but adventurous childhood and their nocturnal search as adults for their crazy, missing father, from whom they cannot seem to extricate themselves.
