Gunther Stauber, head of Translation and Interpreting at a major international organisation in Geneva, seems to be suffering from a mysterious illness when his translations become unintelligible and resemble no known language. He insists he is not ill and that he is on the verge of discovering the primordial language once spoken by all living creatures. His boss, the novel's narrator, Felix Bellamy, decides Gunther has to go. In turn, Felix starts speaking the same gibberish as the missing interpreter. And then his wife disappears, perhaps in search of Gunther. He seeks help in a sanatorium in Munich where he is prescribed an intensive course in Romanian and forbidden from speaking French. He realises that he must talk to his missing colleague to understand what has happened to him and to have any hope of a cure. As he undergoes profound changes-speaking the language of dolphins, of whistles and squeaks-he is forced to confront the deep mysteries of life
