Daniel Kehlmann Rises to Fame as his New Novel Goes on Sale

Daniel Kehlmann’s “brilliant . . . masterful” (Publishers Weekly, starred) Fame is now on sale from Pantheon, and the critics are raving. “A darkly comic tour de force,” says Kirkus in a starred review, “Kehlmann is a writer worth reading.” “Wickedly clever,” (Booklist, starred), “Kehlmann showcases a flair for devious satire as he ponders fact and fiction, fame and infamy.” Jonathan Franzen says: “Modern fame may have been invented in America, but nobody has dramatized its paradoxes and heartbreaks more entertainingly than the European Kehlmann does here.” Time Out New York gives the book 4/5 stars, compares Kehlmann to Tom Wolfe, and urges readers to attend the McNally Jackson reading on 9/21. Be sure not to miss his event at the Goethe Institut NYC on 9/23, where he will be in conversation with editor and translator Carol Janeway, and check out Kehlmann’s full U.S. tour schedule!
