Thanks flopson! Somehow she has a gift for non-fiction tangents (the Joni Mitchell meltdown maybe most notoriously, but even there the vision of her vision somehow doesn't burn my corneas). I want to check her new collection of essays too ("Joy" is fave so far).

Lenzby Georg Büchnertrans. from Germanby Richard Sieburth
Interview and reading by Sieburth and its a fantastic broadcast! I read the first para of Lenz alongside Reddick's version for Penguin and I felt it held up well. Love the idea of the edition -- to centre this as THE piece of prose for that particular time -- although in the intro of the Penguin its very much acknowledged that no one was writing like this in 1835. Still, would be tempted to pick this up 2nd hand.
Things I want to pick up are Hyperion, Novalis, maybe Pla although I'll give him a go on NYRB first.
