My literary explorations are serendipitous and subject to whim, so I am cautious about joining shared reading events. I was unable to resist German Literature Month, co-hosted by Lizzy’s Literary Life and Beauty is a Sleeping Cat, partly because I am drawn to literature from the region but also because I’ve intended to read Theodor Fontane’s Effi Briest and Heinrich Böll for some time.
Those authors aside I plan to read some Kleist for the penultimate week and the following:
Week 1 – German Literature
Jenny Erpenbeck – Visitation
Week 2 – Crime Fiction
Friedrich Durrenmatt – The Judge and His Hangman
Week 3 – From Austria and Switzerland
Thomas Bernhard – Old Masters
