German Literature Month

Thinking about participating in German Literature Month?  Check out Love German Books for details. My reading list for the month:

German Literature:  Sunset, by Klaus Modick

Crime Fiction: Gottes Tochter, by Friedrich Ani

From Austria and Switzerland:  Der kurze Brief zum langen Abschied, by Peter Handke

German Classics: Erfolg, by Lion Feuchtwanger or Lausbubengeschichten by Ludwig Thoma

Update: I forgot to mention that the folks responsible for German Literature month are Lizzy’s Literary Life and Beauty is a Sleeping Cat. You should check out their blogs for more info, not to mention great suggestions on what to read.

    • Hi Caroline. Thanks for commenting and for putting the event together. This event is giving me the opportunity to finish books that have been on my shelf for awhile. I took the Handke book on my honeymoon 21 years ago and never got past the first chapter, for example. 🙂

  3. funny – I occasionally attend an American Literature event at the Amerikahaus here in Munich – the last book the reading group discussed was Jennifer Egan’s A visit from the Goon Squad. I enjoyed it a lot, both reading it and listening to how other peoople interpreted it.
