Funny van Dannen

(Berlin)

An der Grenze zur Realität

Reading

After eight years, Funny van Dannen – one of the founding fathers of the Lassie Singers – returns with new stories: about a dog, who asks an old woman to marry him, about three carps, who want to celebrate Christmas in October, about a cute zombie unable to harm anyone. He listens to kitchen table talk about East Germans fucking as much as they used to, because they have just as little money and work as back in the GDR. He records conversations about faith and adultery and concludes: “If the world were a paradise, I would gallop on a lion over snowy white beaches and send smoke signals to dolphins.” Packed with surprises and spiced with subtle humour!
