|About the Book|
I love Tucholsky, but have read way too few of his works. So in another fit of book-buying insanity, I recently acquired Tucholskys complete works (ebay, how I LOVE HATE LOVE HATE you!).Im not ambitious/insane enough to read them all in one go, no matter how much this reading bit-by-bit displeases my overwhelming need to complete things (life would certainly be more relaxing if I were less neurotic).You can expect this to be on my to-read list for a long long time.UPDATE 1 July 2011:Im happy to be able to report that I finished volume one of the collection, and (mostly) enjoyed it a LOT. With LOTS of capital letters. Tucholsky is brilliant.As I said, Im not ambitious nor insane enough to read every single thing he wrote, and so I skipped some smaller writings, mainly his theater reviews (never his books reviews). I made tons of notes and underlined passages, which I NEVER do when reading a book, but hes just so damn quotable!(which I would do, if I wasnt reading in German and reviewing in English.)One down, nine to go!
