Max Höfler’s uniqueness

“In the Austrian contemporary literature Höfler’s approach, which one can discribe as „Helge Schneider and Monty Python meet Wittgenstein, Kant and Derrida to taste schnapps“, is in any case unique. Max Höflers „Texas als Texttitel“ is an excellent debut, which is deversified and inventive, criticaly satiric and in part gloriously absurd.”
