I, for one, am glad that a translation has made it into the ranks. Looking forward to reading it -

I am also an avid TV evader. Can't wait to read and dicuss this title!

I haven't snuggled up to (or owned, for that matter) a TV in nearly a decade, yet I found this novel surprisingly resonant. Now, more than ever, Toussaint's quick but brilliant TELEVISION is as close as I ever hope to get to the real thing.

Has anyone here read 'out of sheer rage' by Geoff Dyer as well as this? They're weirdly similar in tone and themes - not in any kind of dodgy way, just wondered if anyone else noticed this or its just my limited imagination which links them.

Although there is no reason to believe that the hero ever writes his book, I thought Television was a great evocation of a writer's guilt-ridden gestation process. And although some disagree, I think there is movement in the book: he begins shutting off the TV as self-justification for "wasting his time" but comes to find himself in a real struggle to transcend TV's influence. I also thought the scenes of the Dreschers homecoming were some of the most hilarious I've read in a while.

Television is a fantastic book and I read it with great pleasure.I think a lot of people would like it and it deserves reading it.

Hello! ddgacge interesting ddgacge site!

This is an amusing novella about a man on a sabbatical in Berlin, hoping to work on his "monograph" about Titan, who gives up watching television. The book demonstrates the pervasiveness of television in society. A wry glimpse into an everyday, mundane, and delightfully humorous life, which is unrecognized by the narrator. Delightful if a bit frothy.
