Book review: Ein Gas Blut

Ein Glas Blut by Selim Özdogan

I've recently gotten a borrower's card at UNC libraries, which means I can check out any of the zillions of books in their stacks. This is exciting. So I checked out a book by Turkish German writer Selim Özdogan.

Ein Glas Blut (a glass of blood) is a collection of short prose and prose poetry, and a few spoken-word pieces. A lot of them are about love, the end of love, relationships, etc. There's one fairy tale and a biting social commentary piece, Vibrationshintergrund (Vibration Background), which you can read here in translation.

Literary fiction isn't my usual preference, but I enjoyed the pieces in this collection enough to order a copy for myself.
