SEVERIN,S JOURNEY INTO THE DARK.

My First Visit to Daunt Books, London. Czech Books Section. Contained Many Surprises. Purchased " Sevrein,s Journey Into the Dark ". By Paul Leppin. Leppin,s Quest Was To Shock. This He Did Really Well. German was the Chosen Language in Praha, at This Time. Kafka a Obvious Influence. Listened Recently to BBC Radio 3 Series on Franz Kafka. Essays Given by Leading Writers. On Their Take on Kafka. Most Enjoyed Jeff Young View. Programme,s Also on Kafka,s Praha Life. Play,s & Jazz. On One Programme. Even Heard Talking Heads " Psycho Killer ". When Starting Book. Could Not Get The Velvet Underground Song " Venus in Furs ". Out Of My Head. Severin to the Fore Here. Severin, Wants More From His Dull Life. He Finds it & More. Book Captures Old Praha. In All Its Glory. Index on German Named, Praha Places. Very Interesting. Going Back to Jeff Young. Agree with Him. Some Books May Lose Something in Translation. Book is Well Designed. Good Feel. Very Fine Argument Never to Change to a Electronic Reading Device. Sad Final Years for Leppin. Attracted the Attention of the Gestapo. Over Leppin,s Good Relations with Many Jewish Writers. Died Virtually Forgotten, Buried in Vinohrady Cemetery. Twisted Spoon Publication. Fine Read.
