Quotes CVM Liked

Erich Kästner
“Eine Geschichte, ein Roman, ein Märchen - diese Dinge gleichen den Lebewesen, und vielleicht sind es sogar welche. Sie haben ihren Kopf, ihre Beine, ihren Blutkreislauf und ihren Anzug wie richtige Menschen. Und wenn ihnen die Nase im Gesicht fehlt oder wenn sie zwei verschiedene Schuhe anhaben, merkt man es bei genauem Zusehen.”
Erich Kästner, Emil and the Detectives

Kathryn Sounds very cute! Is it the same as this Emil and the Detectives and do you know if the English translation is any good?


message 2: by CVM (new) - rated it 5 stars

CVM Yes, it's the same! Unfortunately I have no idea how well Kästner translates, his style is very... well, German. I think most of his charme is in the language, so I do hope the translator did him justice.

Kathryn Thanks, Vera. I will hope so, too!
