Uptown Top Ranking (German Writers)

See dem in dey heels and ting
Dem check sey dey hip and ting

FOCUS magazine has done a ranking of the "most important" German-language writers, as trade mag Buchreport reports. They based it on book sales, reporting in the press, TV appearances, literary awards and other stuff including the Google news index.

Strutting their stuff in khaki suits are:

  1. Günter Grass
  2. Martin Walser
  3. Herta Müller
  4. Cornelia Funke
  5. Peter Handke
  6. Elfriede Jelinek
  7. Daniel Kehlmann
  8. Martin Mosebach
  9. Hans Magnus Enzensberger
  10. Ingo Schulze
And 40 others. What a load of old tosh.
