I really enjoyed The Stalin Organ - my review is at http://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?

PAUL BUONAGURO

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.

David

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!

PAUL BUONAGURO

Paul Here. Well, Friends, Grossman’s FOR A JUST CAUSE, Or STALINGRAD has been translated by The Chandlers, But FAUSTRECHT Is Still A Problem For Me, The Hardcover Being So Expensive and the ACE Paperback So Scarce Straight Out. I Located One In New Zealand A Year Ago But It Seems To Have Been Lost In The Mails Due To The International Health Crisis. I Got My Money Back But Didn’t Care Much About That - - Still No Copy Of THE BRUTAL YEARS To Read. Thanks To You All For Your Valuable Help When I First Hit This Wonderful Site. Best To All! Paul Buonaguro
