Praise for MEASURING THE WORLD
"A masterfully realized, wonderfully entertaining and deeply satisfying novel. . . . Addictively readable and genuinely and deeply funny."
—Los Angeles Times
"Kehlmann's lightly surreal style [is] a mixture of comedy, romance and the macabre, with flashes of magical realism that read like Borges in the Black Forest."
—Washington Post Book World
"Elegant and measured in design and expression. . . . What distinguishes Kehlmann are quickness of mind and lightness of touch."
—The New York Times Book Review
Praise from Germany for ME AND KAMINSKI
"Kehlmann is a consummate storyteller, assured in tone, with masterful control over the storyline. . . . Ravishing,"
"I haven't laughed so hard reading a new German novel for a long time. . . . This young author writes fiction with great refinement and sparkling wit. The plot is strong and the dialogue totally hilarious."
"Kehlmann has never given his satiric temperament such free rein. Me and Kaminski is absolutely his funniest book. And his most adventurous."
