Kurt Tucholsky


After carrying the book "Schloss Gripsholm" with me for 30 years, one of my favorites, I just saw the movie by Xavier Koller "Gripsholm". There was discussion afterwards in the audience (with Koller present as a guest) about the timeliness of this novel...almost like our situation now, regarding censorhip, political correctness. That was a strong side of the novel which I had forgotten about. But Koller also captured the lightness wonderfully? Has anybody else seen it?

I saw the movie by Koeller too, but never have red the book. Great movie with good actors. I don't know how much Kurt's biographic life it showed but it really moved me.

Kurt Tucholsky was probably the most brilliant satirist of the 20th century. He saw exactly what was happening in Germany in the 1920's / early 30's and warned against it: reading his works now, one has eerie feeling of deja vu.

I've starts a blog at which I'm post English language translations of Tucholsky:
