Goldt Weeks at German Joys


Max Goldt, the Wotan of German-language satirical prose, will be presented with the Kleist Prize on November 23rd of this year. Congratulations, Herr Goldt.

In honor of this festive occasion, I will be posting several translations of Max Goldt columns in the coming days -- including, by special arrangement, a web-only exclusive English translation of a Max Goldt column that won't be printed in any future book!

The first translation will be posted tomorrow, the next later this week, and one more the week after that.
