I really enjoyed The Stalin Organ - my review is at https://dannyreviews.com/h/Stalin_Organ.html - and Payback, so I'm hoping someone translates Faustrecht into English. Am I right in thinking there is no translation of that yet?

DANNY I WAIT YEAR IN AND YEAR OUT FOR A TRANSLATION OF FAUSTRECHT AND A TRANSLATION OF GROSSMAN'S STALINGRAD. I'M AN OLD MAN AND CAN'T READ GERMAN OR RUSSIAN. I KEEP HOPING TO READ THESE BOOKS BEFORE I DIE. HAVE YOU READ PLIEVIER'S STALINGRAD? An Incredible novel.

Hi Paul, maybe I'll translate Faustrecht. It is his weakest novel, though.

Mike

Re Faustrecht, there was an English translation as "The Brutal Years", published by Weidenfeld & Nicholson in London in 1959. A paperback edition (Ace, London) followed in 1961. Findable second-hand online, but usually expensive.

@Mike,

Good to know. Many thanks!
