MEDIA REVIEWS
Alexander Kluge and Gerhard Richter s December (translated by Martin Chalmers) revives a related tradition: the calendar as history, or the 'chronicle.' Kluge s texts one for each day of the month appear opposite images of winter wastescapes by Richter, together forming a stark, disconcerting record of a Germany frozen if not temporally then spiritually. --Joshua Cohen "Harper's ""
"Alexander Kluge and Gerhard Richter's December (translated by Martin Chalmers) revives a related tradition: the calendar as history, or the 'chronicle.'

"December physically ferries the reader back and forth between word and image, prompting a search for equivalents, as well as for those lost elements that have no equivalents. The space that December inhabits--a winter at once ominous and intimate, the last breath of the year in anticipation of its end and rebirth--is not unlike the space of translation."--Madeleine LaRue "Quarterly Conversation "
