As in the first volume, published by Green Integer in 1999, this second volume contains dialogic discussions of literary figures, performed over German radio from 1953 to 1971 by the great German novelist. Here Schmidt discusses, again, his beloved James Joyce, as well as the English writer Bulwer-Lytton, and the German language authors Schnabel, Herder, Stifter, Frenssen and others.
One of the most noted of German writers of the 20th century Arno Schmidt
died in 1971. He was author of The Egghead Republic, Nobadaddy's Children, Zettle's Traum
(forthcoming from Green Integer) and The School for Atheists
