While We're On The Subject Of Germany

I'm pleased to announce that Carlsen, the German publishers of De Welt Wie Wir Sie Kannten (aka Life As We Knew It) and soon to be German publishers of The Dead And The Gone (I don't know what its German name will be) will also be publishing This World We Live In in the spring of 2012.

I certainly don't know what they'll call it, since De Welt Wie Wir Sie Kannten, according to Google, translates to The World As We Know It, which could add to the confusion. And as we all know, I'm confused enough.

Confused but very very pleased!

I’m glad to tell you that the Google translator is the one who’s confused here. “Kannten” does indeed mean “knew.” If it was “know,” it would be “kennen.” So they did indeed give it the right German title.

The german title of 'The Dead And The Gone' is "Die verlorenen von New York" (The lost ones of New York)
