Max Küng



Lokal im Mousonturm


Max Küng’s columns in the magazine section of the Tages-Anzeiger are legendary – a constant and important companion over many years in the daily lives of many. No one can focus on the everyday, little things, the way he does, while simultaneously contemplating them from surprising perspectives. How to best deal with having to ask for something unpleasant at the pharmacy and initially being misunderstood, how to keep pace with wine connoisseurs without being on par with the vocabulary or the use of closing your eyes in the train if it forces you to interpret mere noises of a sports jacket? The great Max Küng fan club has ample reason to rejoice: finally, the greatest hits from all his columns over the last 20 years, as well as previously undisclosed anecdotes direct from the author.
