Evening Pages

Published by Diogenes as Abendblätter
Original Title: Abendblätter

Flash fiction, memories, short essays, observations and aphorisms: short prose with a lasting effect – by the master of the short form.

How come grey is now called silver metallic? At what point does the word »poet« collapse under its ironic weight? Why is Herwegh, once the greatest poet of all times, hardly read today? Where are the »Global Headquarters of Crime«? And what is the deal with the »Power Block of Reason«?

Comic elements appear alongside the philosophical, scholarly alongside playful, absurd alongside cryptic. Consistently enlightening and surprising, this is a joy to read.
