On Sunday, 21 June 2015, Fred Bridgam, retired senior lecturer in German at the University of Leeds, will be reading Karl Kraus in English translation as part of a pre-concert talk at King’s Place, London. While Kraus is not listed on the site linked to, the good folks behind the Swept Away twitter account have assured me that Kraus will indeed be included.
For those of you who don’t know, Fred Bridgam is co-translating Kraus’s The Last Days of Mankind into English with Edward Timms, the renowned Kraus scholar. Amazon.de is accepting pre-orders and has listed the publication date as 24 November 2015. Kraus enthusiasts have been waiting for a full-length English translation of Kraus’s magnum opus for a long time. The wait is almost over.
In the meantime, attend the pre-concert talk.
