Hey Andrew GREAT JOB!! i´ve read your translations and some Max Goldt in original version and thought that some texts were really difficult, with some cultural references that the poor southamerican girl over here would never get. Why have I stopped reading it? Simple: I always rented the books from Goethe Institut São Paulo, and the readings took such a long time that I´ve got to pay they high fines due to the delays!

"Als ick kan." I know what you mean, and I commiserate. It's a lonely job.

I find this particular author difficult to translate in any case. The difficulty is not merely linguistic but also cultural.

I would pay more attention to the varying levels of tone, which could have a jarring effect on the reader. This must be a problem inherent in the original. Easing your way from one level to the next without distracting your reader will be hard to accomplish.

The parallel use of American and British expressions is discordant at times. One or the other.

I'll add that I read your blog posts with more enjoyment than I do your Goldt translations. It appears that slipping into another literary persona is not an easy thing for you to do, at least here.

Good luck with this.
