Download 'Ich tauge nicht zum Deutschen': Beobachtungen eines by Julio Camba,Andreas Lampert PDF

By Julio Camba,Andreas Lampert

was once hätten Heine oder Tucholsky geschrieben, wenn sie als Ausländer im Auftrag einer Zeitung über das wilhelminische Deutschland hätten berichten sollen? Vermutlich ähnliche Texte wie die, die Julio Camba zwischen 1912 und 1914 für zwei spanische Tageszeitungen tatsächlich geschrieben hat: pointierte und scharfsichtige Beobachtungen all der Merkwürdigkeiten und Skurrilitäten im Deutschland dieser Zeit, die nun erstmals in deutscher Sprache vorliegen.
Camba – laut Ortega y Gasset 'die reinste und eleganteste Intelligenz Spaniens' – schreibt hier über Militarismus und Gelehrtheit, über Nietzsche und das Oktoberfest, über Zeppeline und Schilderwahn, über bayrische Gemütlichkeit und preußische Disziplin, über kolossale Architektur, damals noch nagelneu, darüber, wie es ihm als Ausländer in Deutschland ergeht, und natürlich, unvermeidlich, über die deutsche Küche. Viele seiner Texte geben einen tiefen Einblick in den Geist jener Zeit, andere sind von erstaunlicher Aktualität.
Cambas Humor ist scharf, aber nicht boshaft, seine Texte scheinen stets zwischen Scherz und Ernst zu changieren oder, um es mit Cambas Worten an seine Leser zu sagen: 'Sie wissen, dass Sie mich niemals völlig ernst nehmen dürfen. Niemals völlig ernst und niemals völlig unernst.'

Download Velcro y yo (Spanish Edition) by Martín Rejtman PDF

By Martín Rejtman

«Quizá haya que reconocerle a Rejtman el mérito de dar por perdida de antemano los angeles mediación de los críticos y apelar directamente a los angeles inteligencia de los lectores.» C.E. Feiling


Publicado en 1996, es el segundo libro de relatos de Martín Rejtman y supuso una revolución para los angeles literatura argentina, que en aquel momento, como si hubiesen escaseado los clichés, pocos notaron.

Estas historias extraordinarias aún pueden leerse como si hubiesen sido escritas mañana, en tanto los únicos signos del paso del tiempo que se detectan en ellas no le pertenecen al texto sino al mundo que lo rodea («la sospecha de que también los angeles realidad es idiota», como anotara Graciela Speranza).

Al igual que en «Rapado» (1992) y «Literatura y otros cuentos» (2005), brilla aquí los angeles enorme capacidad del autor y cineasta para convertir lo cotidiano en algo asombroso, y viceversa.
