Jahre nach Erscheinen seines Romans Land der Winde legt der Schweizer Autor nun einen bewegenden und zugleich seinen persönlichsten Text vor. Nach dem Tod seiner Frau, die ihn und sein Schaffen über sechs Jahrzehnte begleitet hat, findet Meier im Schreiben einen Weg aus der Einsamkeit: In atmosphärisch dichter Sprache vergegenwärtigt er sich und dem Leser die Zeit mit Dorli, die intensiven Lektüreerlebnisse, Wanderungen und Reisen. Er führt den Dialog mit seiner Frau über ihren Tod hinaus fort. Die Grenzen zwischen Vergangenem, Gegenwärtigem und Zukünftigem verschwinden in Meiers sensibler Elegie, es bleibt die Sehnsucht, das zärtliche Gedenken an den geliebten Menschen. Der laut Peter Hamm "bekannteste Unbekannte der deutschsprachigen Literatur" knüpft in Ob die Granatbäume blühen an seine Romane an: Gedanken und Motive aus Meiers Prosawerk kehren hier im ruhigen Erzählfluß wieder. Inmitten der Figuren von Tolstoj, Proust und Pasternak und im Spannungsfeld der russischen Weite und des kleinen Schweizer Ortes "Amrain" hat sich Meier seine poetische Heimat eingerichtet
