Giant dragonflies, chupa chups, a stolen meteorite in a psychedelic, increasingly hot Tyrolean summer: Prana Extrem tells of the longing to grasp the world and surrender to it at the same time.
On the Bergiselschanze in the Tyrolean winter sports metropolis of Innsbruck in early summer, the narrator Joshua and his partner Lisa meet sixteen-year-old Michael Stiening, an Austrian ski jumping talent preparing for the new season and his assault on the top of the world. In the training methods of his older sister Johanna, gravitation, inclusiveness and self-confrontation come together. When Joshua and Lisa move into the holiday flat in the siblings' house, a temporary community is formed, which is unexpectedly joined by Joshua's eccentric but caring grandma Suzet and, for a few weeks, little Tilde. And so, in this hot summer in this almost unreal place near the swamps where aloe vera grows in the Alps, a journey of self-discovery begins for all of them.
 
Prana Extrem is the new novel of the outstanding author Joshua Groß who is one the most interesting and intellectuelly restless authors of his generation. The smoothly paced novel is an attempt to depict the rapidly changing world in a multi-layered way; it is the venture to create space for a different togetherness through love, attention and humour; a book that tells of the success of deep connection, and a place that emerges as a magically sublime counter-space to our reality for the duration of the reading.
