Excerpt from First Book of London Visions Beautiful in the bloom of slumber, Peaceful armies without number. Not here I linger the sigh of those That sleep not, draws me with answered throes. A mother, mapping her day of cares, On her sleeping baby softly stares. A youth, by shameful sorrow torn, Thinks on the unendurable morn. By her husband, a wife unhappy lies, With bitter heart and open eyes. An old man hears the voice of the wave, His dear son´s cold, unquiet grave.

Mit 16 ging Moritz Volz nach England, um in der Premier League Fußball zu spielen ? und blieb elf Jahre. Er wurde, was sich Engländer nicht vorstellen konnten: ein Deutscher, der sie zum Lachen bringt. Mit feiner Ironie und genauem Blick für das Skurrile und Schöne erzählt Moritz Volz von seinem Leben in London: Begegnungen mit englischen Handwerkern und deutschen Touristen, britischem Humor, Londoner Pubmannschaften und seinem Versuch, Kricket zu verstehen. Eine Hommage an eine schillernde Weltstadt und ein spleeniges Land.
