book.jpgDouble Vision: A Self Portrait (Knopf)

Walter Abish's most-admired novel, How German Is It, was written before the writer had ever set foot in Germany. This new book, non-fiction, finds Abish on German soil, defending his imaginary Germany. We talk about irony, absence, de-familiarization and, well, double vision.

Read an excerpt from Double Vision.
