Demokratie und demokratischer Staat in der Krise?: eine Frage an Theorie und Praxis zu ihren Handlungsm oglichkeiten und Handlungsgrenzen
On the one hand, this amusing book filled with clever wordplay, brainy puns, and silly songs was delightful. Step 1: Pull into an almost empty parking lot.
Wayne Johnston is a wordsmith. Van and Landish are close but Van seems to use that friendship. "A World Elsewhere" is the story of an American woman in wartime Germany. I received this book from the Goodreads giveaway.
I'm A World Elsewhere of those readers who loved the word play, the puns and all the linguistic inventions. I found the first three quarters of the book tragically boring but the last quarter kept me turning pages. This came in the mail the other day and surprised me, because I hadn't seen notification that I had won it in the giveaway! And in that context, I still found the wordplay charming.
The author's mother, a wealthy American heiress, travelled to Paris with a friend in 1927. For example, the theatre is not just a theatre! Although thwarted in his professional ambitions and attempting to settle down as a gentleman farmer, he joined the Nazi party and was mobilized and eventually sent to participate in Operation Barbarossa, where a sniper killed him at Mogilev on July 23, 1941.
Landish helps him with his essays and also gives him words to speak during their social gatherings.
At the centre of this story is a mystery: the suspected murder of a child.
Once again, a beloved family home is lost.
