Nice one, Rob!
Thanks for the link, Rob! I'm almost finished with "Cultural Amnesia" - what a treasure! And astonished to find there so many of my countrymen!
Dont' be astonished Francessa - there are one or two good Germans...:-)
Sure! Maybe even three or four!But my Austrian countrymen are superior in number, at least in this book:Peter Altenberg, Siegmund Freud, Egon Friedell, Alfred Polgar, and Ludwig Wittgenstein.And you could count Franz Kafka and Karl Kraus as well who were born during the time of the Austrian-Hungarian monarchy.
Yes, the Austrians are in the ascendant. So glad you enjoyed it - I was really impressed with it.
