Max Goldt

Max Goldt is a German author who writes mostly essays or short columns about everyday things, language and basically anything he wants. He just published a new book – Zimbo – and is therefore doing some readings, two of which where in Vienna.

I will keep this short, since I don’t really know how to review a reading. :) Goldt’s writing is pretty great – funny and intelligent and it really lends itself ot be read aloud. [Though I can also very much recommend reading him for yourself.] He’s a good reader with a very nice voice.

His text choice was pretty good – he read mostly from his new book, but also some older stuff.

Summarising, seeing him do a reading is a good way to get to know his writing and it’s also very enjoyable even if you already know his stuff.

    Adress: Marcel Van Impe
