Compare and Contrast: Look Who's Back
It's always interesting when British tabloids report on German books. Compare today's Daily Mail piece on Timur Vermes' Er ist wieder da with the book's description in New Books in German, for which I wrote the report. There are a few similarities. Rights have sold, incidentally, to MacLehose Press, who have an expert translator lined up. The comments section is amusing too.
