Gretel Adorno, Walter Benjamin

Gretel Adorno / Walter Benjamin: Correspondence 1930 - 1940

The correspondence between Gretel Adorno and Walter Benjamin began in 1930, but only after Benjamin’s emigration to France did it reach its full intensity, standing not only as a testament to the intellectual Berlin of the twenties, but also as a document of a great friendship that existed independently of the relationship between Benjamin and Theodor W. Adorno.

The Last Territory

On our literary map that is hardly even an outline of the Ukraine, the second largest country in Europe. Andruchowytsch, the internationally best known Ukraine author takes the limited knowledge of his audience in West Europe and the United States seriously and in a series of brilliant essays familiarizes them more closely with a forgotten region in Central Europe.

Juri Andruchowytsch

Perversion

The godchild of Rabelais and Bakhtin, Bulgakov and Esterházy, it is a whirligig of forms, styles, and apocryphal traditions – an adventure for readers who view life not as something to lament and despair over, but as something worth celebrating joyfully with a good book.

Twelve rings

In the 1990s, Karl-Joseph Zumbrunnen, an Austrian photographer with Galician roots, travels repeatedly through the Ukraine. The birth pangs of this new state, the incongruous mixture of brutally tasteless commercialization, backward Hutsul folklore, re-Sovietization and Habsburg nostalgia fascinates him.

The Book Goldmann

The Book Goldmann is the name Ingeborg Bachmann gave to her great narrative project, which she cherished until the end. This edition renders the previously only fragmentarily available work recognizable as a project of redemptive narration. The Book Goldmann deals with the various aspects of indiscretion, including misunderstood indiscretion that leaves the other alone in his distress. Half a century after Hofmannsthal, Bachmann discovers a social medium in the somewhat indiscrete Viennese conversation, which could have prevented the worst: Fanny Goldmann’s death.
