From the internationally best-selling author Daniel Kehlmann, a provocative, wickedly funny novel about two unpredictable men - one an artist and the other a journalist - who together embark on an unexpected adventure with uproarious results.

Sebastian Zollner's failure as a journalist is matched only by his personal failures: his girlfriend is moving a new lover in before Sebastian even knows he's been dumped. Searching for the break that will redeem him in the eyes of his peers, he heads off on a wild-goose chase into the mountains to interview the eccentric, legendary painter Manuel Kaminski with the hope of writing his biography. Kaminski is going blind and is living in seclusion with his daughter. He could be working on his next masterpiece or easing into his final days, and his inconsistent career raises the question of whether he has been a fraud or a genius.

His artistic reputation hinges on any number of factors, but most prominently on a definitive biography. Enter Zollner - who has no intention of writing a puff piece. He's out to dig dirt and to force Kaminski to confront the legacy of his work. But the secrets he uncovers will lead Kaminski, and Zollner himself, to places neither of them ever expected to go.

With edgy wit and intelligence, Kehlmann dives into the question of what is truth in our celebrity-crazed times and embraces the energy and humanity that lie beneath the pretensions of the art and journalistic worlds. Download and start listening now!

    " Funny, witty, charming, unexpected, and a very quick read. 3 1/2 stars. "

    " Definitely not a book I would have read on my own - but I was bored and it was just lying around my dad's place so I read it. It wasn't bad, a nice little storyline, nothing overly deep, but not boring either. Humorous in parts - not laugh-out-loud - but definitely funny in a wry sort of way. "

    " He was such an asshole in this book! Amazing writing, and after 3 read books by Kehlmann, I'm allowed to add him as a favourite author! :)) "

    " I choose Me and Kaminski randomly and was mostly intrigued because it was by a German author. It was subtly entertaining and reads quickly, but nothing special. "
