“This isn’t the usual tearjerker cancer story. It is a gleefully offensive cancer story. It is the Blazing Saddles of cancer stories.”
“The German War” is an important scholarly achievement in the field of modern German history, and it is written with an epic narrative sweep.
“After Hitler” by Michael Jones is “a brilliant exploration of the final days of the European theater, valuable in its military analysis and generous use of eyewitness accounts.”
I review books on Hitler’s domestic spaces and how Germany deals with 4 centuries of history over at the New York Journal of Books.
“Of Earth and in Hell” by Thomas Bernhard represents “a fascinating peek into the genesis of Austria’s controversial literary figure.”.
