Liebe auf den ersten Blick

Love at First Sight

Published by Diogenes as Liebe auf den ersten Blick
Original Title: Liebe auf den ersten Blick

Otto Jägersberg’s new work of short prose is the ideal book with which to forget everything around you.

»Where is happiness? It’s wherever you’re not.« In this playful smorgasbord, happiness can be found on every page.

Everyday observations, anecdotes, culinary explorations, mini essays, poems. Otto Jägersberg captures what he encounters on his wanderings with wit, humour and loving precision.

»Where am I? On the internet. Whatever I see, sees me too. Wherever I click, it looks back at me. In the car, too: when I don’t know where I am, the satellite knows. Everything I click helps fill out the image the internet has of me. I don’t yet know what I want, but the internet does. I guide my mouse according to my interests, I’m bringing myself ever closer to my interests, I’m so close now, I’m in pursuit.«

»Otto Jägersberg offers the reader his texts without commentary, and they are as surprising as they are readable.«
