DAMMIT -I swore no more Amazon orders this month, but this is just too good.Damn this fantastic blog and its brilliant art!
Thank you for the comments. I reworked the text a bit -- I hope it wasn't too obvious that I attended a happy hour right before working on this post yesterday.Sofi, the blog is indeed named after Karinthy's book. Search the site for "Karinthy" to see a bunch of posts on him.Will
Hey Will - as usual you find all the interesting and obscure stuff!! Makes me want to find Dino's books and read!!
ordering some of these for red emma's now....
Just got a copy of this - this is fantastic! I'm very impressed with NYRB, not the most obvious thing for them to bring out. Makes me want to know much more about Dino Buzzati - I read The Tartar Steppe years ago, but I feel like there must be much more out there.
Just ordered mine from NYBooks. $23 including shipping to Sweden is just awesome.
I feel I'm a little late to the game on this one-- missed it when NYRB published it last fall and missed your post too somehow.I stumbled upon this book last weekend at my local indie book shop and just HAD to buy it immediately. Incredible, wild stuff--- I'm impressed with the lettering on the English version as well.Of to follow your links and read more about Dino Buzzati now!
Ryan, considering that so many of his translated books are out-of-print and hard to find, I was really surprised this book was published -- God bless NYRB. Hope it does okay for them.
Wow, Dino. A great writer, but also a great great painter (sadly, here in italy his visual art is a little underrated).
