Biased and unprofessional reports on German books, translation issues and life in Berlin
You haven't read 'Buddenbrooks'? Shame on you ;)
but Buddenbrooks is actually quite funny! try it!
You guys crack me up.
Actually "Buddenbrooks" is overrated. Try "Der Zauberberg"! It's as good as "Faust" or "Gravity's Rainbow" ... ;) I really like it that you're pushing Jan Brandt's novel. Actually it was your review that finally made me read it in less than six days. A friend from Florida to whom I passed on the review is reading it too now. And isn't that a strange place to enjoy "Gegen die Welt"?Kai
Very strange indeed.
But Buddenbrooks really is funny! Unlike Der Zauberberg which is fantastic in a very not funny sort of way.
I knew you'd be famous some day.When will you do your America tour?
