In his collection of glosses, Harald Martenstein has assembled 52 necessary digressions on daily life at the beginning of the 21st century.
No matter what Harald Martenstein turns to, be it a discussion about whether you can drive Inland Revenue round the bend by paying 49 cents in tax arrears instead of 94 cents, or a review of the literary examples followed by serial killers in the pre-computer-game days – with his cult glosses, DIE ZEIT columnist Harald Martenstein always hits the nail on the head of German feelings. Daily madness, administrative lunacy and the general moan and groan about problems that goes down so well in the media are treated by the Egon-Erwin-Kisch Award-winner with a mixture of anarchy, gleeful dissection and a merciless tendency to take things at their face value. At last another Martenstein guide, with gems of the highest quality.
