Descartes' Devil

Highly recommended: Durs Grünbein, Descartes' Devil (tr. Anthea Bell). I have not read the English, but I have read it in German, and it's a truly fabulous book, as good a read as Descartes himself. You can read more about it here.

Now if only somone would commission me to translate Grünbein's Vom Schnee, his verse novel about Descartes in Germany, which is even better than Descartes' Devil.
