A novel about the oddball Fleischman, an amateur meteorologist who works in the Grandhotel on the summit of Ještěd. His lifelong autistic preoccupation, or rather obsession, is watching clouds and keeping detailed records of them. Another of his obsessions is his platonic affection for a TV weather girl. To Fleischman the region of Liberec, which he has never set foot outside of in his life, is both a home and a prison. His problematic relationship with his stepfather and his enthusiasm for the Liberec football club drive the plot forward.
