Clemens Meyer's Online Fight Club

The FAZ blogs, otherwise a bit on the dull side, have livened up a bit since Clemens Meyer started contributing. He certainly seems to be as preoccupied with boozing and fighting - and writing and art - as his books would suggest. So we get a little summary of all the other writers he wanted to punch when drunk as a student, a near punch-up at the Christmas funfair, a spot of rioting on New Year's Eve - and at least the promise of a series of literary boxing matches, starting with Daniel Kehlmann vs. Jörg Fauser.

All garnished with opinionated book tips, references to his difficult film script, and asides slagging off writers and critics. More fun than Rainald Goetz, guaranteed.
