Kate’s 2¢: “Tyll” by Daniel Kehlmann; Ross M. Benjamin

“Tyll” by Daniel Kehlmann; Ross M. Benjamin
Kate’s 2¢: There is a plethora of in-depth biographies of authors and reviews of their books, that state the title, author, published date, and genre; as well as, describing what the book is about, setting, and character(s), so, Kate’s 2¢ merely shares my thoughts about what I read. I’m just saying…

My first thought was that this story is quite phantasmagoric. (Phantasmagoria (noun) is a sequence of real or imaginary images like those seen in a dream.) That might also be a good definition of what a Psychological Fiction is all about.
Firdous Bamji did a great job of reading the story.
