    1. The anniversary of this volume which celebrates the centenary of Herr Arno Schmidt. If you've not acquired yourself a copy yet ; do yourself a favor ;; even if you don't give a flip about Schmidt, a nice manner of introducing an underread/BURIED Giant=of=Fiction to a wider and eager audience (how would a comparable volume on Dorothy M. Richardson be performed?). complete-review/saloon_____________________Simply put, this centennial colloquy is the only -- and the best -- introduction to Arno Sch [...]


    2. Just read that Umberto Eco passed. Moments arrive and depart with a languid pulse. Mr. Orthofer reconciles that with the crashing din of a planet of narcissists. His blog and reading compendium are an amazing asset to the book nerd's trek. I highly recommend both ( complete-review/main/m and complete-review/saloon). This is an interesting print-on-demand context for the sublime albeit obscure world of Arno Schmidt. My phone now knows Arno Schmidt, I like that. I had two coworkers tell me today n [...]


    3. Begeisterung für das Werk Arno Schmidts zu wecken und dazu beizutragen, dass er nicht in Vergessenheit gerät, ist eine der nobelsten Aufgaben überhaupt, wahrscheinlich sogar die einzige ehrenhafte Aufgabe im Reich der Literatur schlechthin.Schmidts zahllose Eigenwilligkeiten und sein einzigartiger Umgang mit der deutschen Sprache macht es schon deutschen Lesern nicht leicht, Zugang zu diesem Solipsisten zu finden. Ungleich schwerer muss es sein, den englischsprachigen Leser zu begeistern, obw [...]


    4. This slim volume is basically the novelization of hanging out with an English major who wants to gush about Schmidt for an hour or so. Not necessarily a bad thing, but it is what it is.The enthusiasm for the man and work is beyond apparent, and there is a pretty decent overview of both Schmidt's life and work here (probably one of the better biographical overviews in English, though that points more to the paucity of such work more than anything else); but, in the end all it really has to offer [...]


    5. Glad to have supported Orthofer with my purchase and the read was quick and enjoyable. A bit on the hokey side (especially the bar/drink jokes/comments), and nothing of firm substance, but some nice tid bits along the way and not a bad way to kill an hour of your time.


    6. This is a book for real literature geeks (I'm probably just at the half-geek level, myself), although it's quite an amusing read for someone who knows nothing about Arno Schmidt. Published for the centenary of the German writer Arno Schmidt, Orthofer has composed a "colloquy" between three voices: that of a fiftyish, world-weary devotee of Schmidt's books (Orthofer, no doubt), a more "naive" figure, and a "shadowy" figure. They meet in a pub over whiskeys and bourbons and discuss the renowned Ge [...]
