An extraordinary love story about a woman, two men and a child.

The main character is an ill woman called K who works as a maths teacher. One of the great loves of her life is Ferdinand, who has committed suicide, but who still frequently stops by for a chat. At the same time, K waits for her other love, an Irishman called Samuel, who is caught in an endless cricket match. Then K gives birth to Maeve. When it rains she puts Maeve in a plastic bag, and they are joined together for a long time via an umbilical cord.

33 is a serious and miraculous novel about moments when everything changes. How do we dare to fall when we don’t know if there is anyone there to catch us?
