I L.O.V.E. Tucholsky. I had no idea this even existed in translation.

Just reissued. I love NYRB classics, and the book club is great. You get a "new" book each month - a fresh translation or reissue - and it is a mix of fiction/non-fiction and international authors.

That sounds fabulous!
Oh, this is excellent news! Do you know whether they're planning to publish translations of his newspaper pieces and shorter satire as well?

That would be so cool, wouldn't it? (Tho, I do not envy that translator at all!!)
Neither do I!! But the world could definitely use a bit more Tucholsky. Especially in recent days.

Oh, agreed!!! (Of course...)

I'm not sure, but if the pass is any indication eventually. NYRB Classis usually publish more than one book. But there is an English translation of the satire:
