The pains and pleasures of Bodo Kirchhoff

Love, fundamentally

Of course I had read it! Not without a little trepidation, I will admit. It is, after all, a heavyweight volume of 670 pages – plenty of work, therefore. So I hoped it would be good. And it is: excellent, in fact. A compendious, compelling, frank and poetic study of love. Of the pleasure. And the pain. It’s the latest novel by Bodo Kirchhoff, who is also my latest guest on Talking Germany. The critics say it’s his best.
