Identity And Memory


Identity and Memory – author Benjamin Stein | Arts.21
Hochgeladen von deutschewelle. - Kunst und Animation Videos.
"Benjamin Stein is a computer specialist, management consultant and novelist. Born in East Berlin, Stein's new novel is titled «Die Leinwand», which is scheduled to appear as «The Canvas» in English translation.The story can be read from the front or the back, with the novel's two narrators meeting in the middle… a literary discovery and a fascinating page-turner about the nature of German-Jewish identity."
For once, a review about Benjamin and his book "Die Leinwand" (The Canvas) has been translated to English. Nice! Quite a few of you have asked me about his book. This report will give you an idea.

Me? I could never translate a German text into English. But we are hoping the best and maybe it will indeed be translated.
