Martin Mosebach is known on these shores as a Catholic apologist and as the author of the Heresy of Formlessness. But in his own country he is above all a novelist. There has now appeared What was Before – to my knowledge the first translation of one of his novels (Was davor Geschah) into English. (Kari Driscoll, translator; Seagull Books, 2014). You can get it at Amazon.
