Original Title: Der rasende Reporte
Journalism is also a literary genre, as can be seen in the brilliant reports and chronicles of Egon Erwin Kisch. It is not just a question of documenting the facts, but of putting them in context, of showing the complexity that surrounds them. To achieve this, Kisch resorts to journalistic narration, which would not become what it is today without the immense work that he developed throughout his life. Part of this work is gathered in El reporter vertiginoso, a series of chronicles and reports that immerse us in the world of the author and in his deep panoramic vision. Comprised of more than fifty stories, this volume includes articles Kisch wrote about the 20th century. Whether we're searching for the mythical golem, diving into the depths of the sea, or analyzing tattoos.
