Warum haben Sie Asyl beantragt? Diese Frage muss der namenlose Erzähler mehrfach täglich ins Russische übersetzen. Er arbeitet als Dolmetscher für die Schweizer Einwanderungsbehörde bei Vernehmungen von Flüchtlingen aus der ehemaligen Sowjetunion. Doch beim Übersetzen des fremden Leids legt sich seine eigene Lebensgeschichte wie eine zweite Schicht um die Worte. Auch er ist ein Emigrant, der sich nach denen sehnt, die er nicht mehr um sich hat: nach seiner Frau und seinem Kind. Und plötzlich treten dem Dolmetscher neben seinen eigenen Erinnerungen und Gefühlen auch Geschichten aus anderen Welten und Zeiten entgegen. Auf faszinierende Weise erzählt Schischkin ein Jahrhundert russischer Geschichte und bettet außerdem das Leben des Dolmetschers durch Verweise in einen Kosmos der gesamten Weltkultur ein. „Venushaar” ist eine vielstimmige Parabel auf das verlorene Paradies – kunstvoll komponiert, stilistisch virtuos.
