November is, of course, German Literature Month on many lovely blogs, and I’m planning to take part myself; I think much of my German reading will be in the form of Mann’s “The Magic Mountain” – all 700-odd pages of it…..!
However, this week is Christa Wolf Week, hosted by Caroline at Beauty is a Sleeping Cat. I read Wolf’s “The Quest for Christa T” a year ago for German Literature Month and absolutely loved it. I have a pile of Wolf’s books lurking but I suspect I won’t get to any this year thanks to Thomas Mann. So I thought I would point you back to my earlier review and a book of which I said: The quest for Christa T. is in the end a quest for truth, full of phrases and sentences that pull you up with their brilliance.
You can read the rest of my review here, and I’m looking forward to reading other people’s posts on Wolf this week!
