"Kompass" ist das Buch der Stunde: eine leidenschaftliche Beschwörung der jahrhundertelangen Passion des Westens für die orientalische Kultur. Unter dem Schock einer alarmierenden medizinischen Diagnose verbringt Franz Ritter, Musikwissenschaftler in Wien, eine schlaflose Nacht. Er begibt sich im Geiste noch einmal an die Orte seiner Forschungsreisen: Istanbul, Damaskus, Aleppo, Palmyra – alles Städte, die für ihn untrennbar mit Sarah verbunden sind, der berühmten Orientalistin, seiner großen Liebe. Seine Erinnerung zaubert immer mehr Fakten, Romanzen und Geschichten hervor, die alle von dem entscheidenden Beitrag des Orients zur westlichen Kultur und Identität zeugen. Für diesen Roman erhielt Mathias Enard in Frankreich 2015 den Prix Goncourt.
