Robert Menasse's satirical EU novel

February 28, 2019

With "The Capital," Austrian author Robert Menasse has written "the first EU novel ever." It deals with Brussels' webs of bureaucracy and the battered image of the European Union. The committed European writer humorously portrays careerists and political power games while showing what holds Europe together. It is now available in English.
