"Writer, playwright, renowned for his rediscovery and publishing of baroque music, organ builder and restorer, hormone researcher! The basic motto of the trilogy of novels from which this story comes was "The living are few, the dead many." Stories often appeared in his novels, with no warning and no apparent connection to their context, this text [Kebad Kenya] being a case in point. Jahnn was a unique writer who rejected conventional morals and institutions and conjured up a pan-eroticism and anti-civilisatory standpoint, where time and place melt and merge. He has never been widely popular but is often cited as one of the most important German writers of this century."
"I hope this works... I just wanted to thank you for leading me to read The Ship. It is so very hard to say anything about the book. There is so much content packed in every sentence. I am now moving on to some other authors on the neglected book list. Take pride in the fact you are keeping the work of Jahnn alive by creating another fan. Thank you."
