A Book a Day - Day 15

The Tower: A Novel - Uwe Tellkamp, Michael Mitchell

LUCKY DIP - THE LAST BOOK I BOUGHT

 

Thanks to Books, hockey, and a bucketful of snark for clearing up what the "Lucky Dip" is all about today!

 

The last book I bought was Der Turm (The Tower) by Uwe Tellkamp as recommended by Bettie's Books

 

I grew up not far from Dresden, which apparently provides some of the setting for the book, and I am very excited to read Tellkamp's story about life in 1980s East Germany.

 

It looks like the BL catalogue does not currently have a listing for the German edition so the cover accompanying this post is for another edition.
