During my stay in Vienna I plan to write my new novel. It is a novel about a small island in the south and the residents who live traditionally, away from any developments. The peace of the residents will disrupt group of foreigners who are moving to the island. It is a novel about xenophobia, fear of the new and the repressed desires and fear of what they wear. Although foreigners are trying not to distort natives however lineups looking for ways to get rid of them again to live as before.
