Austrian writer and journalist Karl Kraus died in 1936, but his satirical writings have continued to win friends in more contemporary times. Most noteworthy of these is novelist Jonathan Franzen (The Corrections; Freedom) who here guides readers through Kraus essays that he himself has now translated. Even in his own day, the political and cultural critiques of the Viennese writer were regarded as enigmatic and, in those repressive times, intentionally cryptic. A fascinating tribute from one social commentator to another.
