Beers & Books XXXII – Siegfried Lenz

The German Lesson
was one of his most remarkable novels.

 Siegfried Lenz (17 March 1926 – 7 October 2014)


  1. I have every intention, once the Library is open again, to borrow this book, actually all the books of Sigfried Lenz. Not only for what he expresses but for his magnificent style. I read such glorieus reviews. And I'm truly hungry for well written books.
    You're very fortunate, Sean. If his descriptive, poetic style is so good in a translated book, I just imagine how wonderful it must be in German. I can hardly wait!

    1. It's a pity your libraries seem to not have found a way to provide their customers with reading fodder.
      In spring, when bookshops had to stay closed, readers could still order books, and next afternoon the bookseller herself would deliver.
      The books I posted in the photo contain his stories written between 1948 and 1963, and between 1964 and 2011.
