“A Bigger Splash” by Luca Guadagnino

In my last post, I wrote about "Call Me By Your Name" by André Aciman and the adaptation that is coming out soon. Today, I am gonna tell you why I was so excited to learn that none other than Luca Guadagnino had adapted it for the big screen. It's not because I have seen … Continue reading “A Bigger Splash” by Luca Guadagnino

“Call Me By Your Name” by André Aciman

It doesn't happen often that the perfect book, at the perfect time, just falls into your hands. To me, it happened just a few days ago. I was visiting my mother (Hi, mum!) for a week or so to spend some time with her, celebrate her birthday (Happy birthday again!) and enjoy the heat and … Continue reading “Call Me By Your Name” by André Aciman

“Atonement” by Ian McEwan

Ever since reading "Never Let Me Go" by Kazuo Ishiguro and watching the film adaptation starring Keira Knightley among others I felt the urge to re-watch "Atonement", the film adaptation by Joe Wright from 2007, once again starring the brilliant Knightley and an equally brilliant James McAvoy. But before that, of course, I had to … Continue reading “Atonement” by Ian McEwan

“Liebe in Zeiten der Follower” von Max Richard Leßmann

So, da bin ich wieder! Der Urlaub ist vorbei und mit ihm die Social Media-Abstinenz. Was habe ich verpasst? Eine ganze Menge anscheinend. Zwischen der ganzen "Game of Thrones"-Hysterie und dem neuen "IT"-Trailer hat Lana Del Rey ihr neues Album veröffentlicht (da könnte ich drüber schreiben) und auch Arcade Fire haben endlich ihre neue Platte rausgehauen, … Continue reading “Liebe in Zeiten der Follower” von Max Richard Leßmann

Roald Dahl

I am sure that everybody, at some point or other, has heard of Roald Dahl. And I am not talking about British kids here, who will know his stories, or at least some of them, by heart. I'm talking about the rest of the world, mostly, of course, Germany, as I am myself a German. … Continue reading Roald Dahl

“Sei ein Faber im Wind” von Faber

Musikmäßig waren es tatsächlich mal wieder ein paar gute Wochen für mich. Arcade Fire haben wieder von sich hören lassen, Lorde hat ein neues Album rausgebracht, genau wie Portugal. The Man. Aber es ist ein deutschsprachiges Album auf das ich am meisten gespannt war und das mich am meisten überzeugt hat. Auf den aus der … Continue reading “Sei ein Faber im Wind” von Faber

“Letzte Stunde vor den Ferien” vom Neo Magazin Royale mit Jan Böhmermann

Dass ich ein großer Fan von Jan Böhmermann und seinem Neo Magazin Royale bin ist wohl schon bei meinem letzten Blogbeitrag über ihn aufgefallen, jetzt hat er seinen Status als einer der besten deutschen Entertainer noch einmal untermauert. Mit dem Segment "Letzte Stunde vor den Ferien" hat er nicht nur vier Klassiker der deutschen Literatur … Continue reading “Letzte Stunde vor den Ferien” vom Neo Magazin Royale mit Jan Böhmermann

“Never Let Me Go” by Kazuo Ishiguro

After re-reading "The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood and watching the Hulu-adaptation I remembered one other dystopian story that had a profound effect on me. "Never Let Me Go" by Kazuo Ishiguro is a 2005 novel, was adapted in 2010 for the big screen by Mark Romanek, and a novel I never actually read. I watched … Continue reading “Never Let Me Go” by Kazuo Ishiguro
