All U.S. literature
O’Brien, Aus Dalkeys Archive (Harry Rowohlt)
Wallace, Am Beispiel des Hummers (Ingendaay)
Thompson, The Rum Diaries
Only the latter to be had in the original at Kisch, unfortunately. Would have liked to read the authors themselves in this case, not the highly esteemed colleagues. Then I always have to deal with their work as a translator instead of that of the authors as an author. Distracts.
When A. writes to me via Facebook about what is reported from the pimped Windows 8 via digitally devious paths, I call her very oldschool and we find out that she is sitting in front of another screen not seven hundred meters away in Taborstraße after at least ten years without other than very sparse written contact.
Come over, I say.
