reading diary

  • recently finished: Italo Calvino: Der geteilte Visconte. dtv 1997 [Il visconte dimezzato] - The italian title is much more precise than the german one, maybe "Der halbierte Visconte" would have been perceived as too graphic and definite. I briefly considered moving this book from the italian literature section to the science fiction & fantasy shelf
  • delivered and finished yesterday: Katarina Mazetti: Mein Kerl vom Land und ich. Eine Liebesgeschichte geht weiter. Piper 2007 [Familjegraven] - I am a bit bemused that Piper lists this book among its "Boulevard Paperbacks"... The first-person narrator is a pale and likeable public librarian called Desirée, interested in arts and french cuisine, trying to manage her relationship with farmer Benny. By the way, this is the sequel to "Der Kerl vom Land. Eine Liebesgeschichte" [Grabben i graven bredvid].
