Die Kernzelle von Andorra findet sich in Max Frischs Tagebuch als Eintragung des Jahres 1946.

Man in the Holocene : a story by Max Frisch ( Book )
20 editions published between 1980 and 2007 in English and German and held by 1,024 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A stunning tour de force, Man in the Holocene constructs a powerful vision of our place in the world by combining the banality of an aging man's lonely inner life and the objective facts he finds in the books of his isolated home. As a rainstorm rages outside, Max Frisch's protagonist, Geiser, watches the mountain landscape crumble beneath landslides and flooding, and speculates that the town will be wiped out by the collapse of a section of the mountain. Seeking refuge from the storm in town, he makes his way through a difficult and dangerous mountain pass, only to abandon his original plan and return home. A compelling meditation by one of Frisch's most original characters, Man in the Holocene charts Geiser's desperate attempt to find his place in history and in the confusing and fragile world outside his window

Ein früher Roman von Max Frisch, der viele Jahre lang nicht mehr einzeln lieferbar war. Yvonne, Tochter aus gutem Haus, heiratet den Archäologen Hinkelmann. Als sie schwanger wird und er hilflos reagiert, verlässt sie ihn kurzerhand. Yvonne will in Zürich in der Schweiz unabhängig leben, gerät aber in eine schwierige Liebe zum jungen Künstler Jürg Reinhart. Der Roman, "ein Gespinst aus dicht verwobenen Handlungsfäden und zarten Seelenanalysen, unterscheidet sich von Frischs späteren Büchern besonders durch das Rätselvolle seiner Menschen, das Geheimnis, das sie umgibt". (Karlheinz Deschner) Vor dem 100. Geburtstag Frischs im Mai 2011 ist das Buch in Peter von Matts Kollektion wieder zugänglich
