The Great Love German Books Seasonal Gift List

You know what it's like - you're a complete German book freak and you just long to spread the love, bringing the joy of Teutonic writing to all your nearest and dearest. But your average book store doesn't cater to your taste, perhaps considering it strange or idiosyncratic for some unfathomable reason. So you're left wallowing in a mire of confusion over what books to buy for all those friends and relatives sadly incapable of reading German.

But never fear, for the Great Love German Books Seasonal Gift List is here! With recommendations of German-language books published mostly this year in English translation. Loosen your purse-strings, Germanic literature evangelists, and go shopping.

Small print: I must add that I haven't test-driven every single one of these books personally, but I'm sure any German book that passes the translation hurdle must be of above-average standard. The list does, however, reflect love german books' personal taste in that it is almost entirely devoid of dead writers. Sorry.

Sadly Amazon.co.uk doesn't quite list _Tartar Cuisine_ as in print, as such.

Having, as I do, an underdeveloped sense of urgency, particularly in literature, I just got round to reading Kehlmann's Het meten van de wereld, which apparently is a stately five-year-old. But I think he is at least not dead?

kjd said...

Oh dear, I see the problem. The US issue has been out for a while though, and nobody ever said it was easy to get hold of these exotic fruits.

Daniel Kehlmann is indeed not dead, as such. Just didn't make this year's list, although he was on it last year.

A wonderful list of festive treats - not that any of my nearest and dearest would thank me for a lump of unsolicited G-Lit ;(

Anything for brown flâneurs?

kjd said...

Brown flaneurs will have to wait for January, when Robert Walser's "Berlin Stories" come out in Susan Bernofsky's translation from NYRB Classics.

kjd said...

@Tony - I find they soon get used to their annual dose of G-lit.
