The night of the Homo Faber Houellebecq under threw

"Who has stolen the diamonds and hide them in your eyes?" This is the loveliest of the "198 bad chat-up" that lists the flirt, the German University is currently on your Website – the Rest of it dangles in the abyss deep below the infamous belt line.

The Moralist sees this as just another sign of our societal decline. The Optimist says, however: "friends, we can do better. So: clever, funny, lovely!" It seems as if it had been from the Swiss book dealers and publishers Association (SBVV) answered. The line drew inspiration from this year's world book day a daring Experiment. And on Tuesday evening in the paper room in the Sihlcity Area, using an advertising Agency, a speed Dating event called "Say it with a book".

crackle is different

30 women and 30 men have Signed up. They all want to meet at 19.30, all of them have set the scene for a book, you characterize yourself, or simply present; whether novel, literature, book, or Comic, is no matter. Every man gives a book to the Entree and receives a name tag and a number, the same number is pasted on the book. Then he continues to be the same in the front part of the hall and süffelt the Welcome Drink. The books of the men are brought in the rear part of the room, and there, on a table designed. In this rear part, the women have also received a name tag and a drink, but no number gather – this is because they are the select to the books table to your favorites, and the first Dating Partner of the Evening.

The rendezvous lasts for seven minutes, then sounds a bell, the women want to change the table, the men remain seated. This procedure is repeated seven times, all may flirt seven times for seven minutes books. Also important: Since it is not a public event, to be reproduced in this report people anonymously.

at 20.15 hrs is the pre-heating done. The men sit, the women, for the agony of the choice (and partly Vice-versa) to the books table and search then the corresponding masculine counterpart. Quickly a witty and loud babble of voices fills the room, crackling atmosphere is different. We take a first snippet:

Berta: Storytelling, Typography, Drawing ... that's why I like it.

Conradin: Yes, me Comics mean quite a lot. I've read a lot of "Asterix" and "Lucky Luke" ...

Berta: "Lucky Luke"! I'm also big!

Conradin: I just think it's a great Medium.

From the organizers is to learn that the youngest Person is 25 and the oldest 63. In addition, it have a lot of people with an academic Background, what is not the topic of the book is amazing. But also a journalist, a writer and other creative people on the adventure. The have made beautiful, while others rely on casual gap, fashion jewelry, and real gold, subtle and more offensive Tattoos, perfume moderately, most have held back. It is striking that one hears in addition to different Swiss and German dialects at a table in English and another in French, and that it is everywhere at a furious pace and yet intimately with the thing. The right Moment to short in another lively dialogue in zuhorchen.

Abigail: Richard Ford is one of the great American writer, and so between 70 and 80.

Herbert: Okay.

Abigail: And this is a trilogy. So, it's a thick book in front of it, i.e., "The sports reporter". And then The situation of the country follows. And it is actually only one man, Frank Bascombe, is a regular guy whose life is described.

Herbert: And this trilogy has a connection?

An interested observer of the hustle and bustle also be Martin Spillmann, former "recruiter of the year", can't get used to, in spite of retirement age at retirement or want to – and, therefore, as a facilitator has helped to put this Event on the legs. He reveals that he can convince his wife once with books from have: she was alone in the holidays, and he had given her seven novels, "apparently, it was the right". On the question of whether he could still remember the title, he thinks about it for a while, then he laughs and says: "One was "Lady Chatterley's Lover" by D. H. Lawrence ... she was still in another relationship." Relationship? The perfect cue for a further wiretapping:

Renee: I feel in a contrast to our time. It takes time to in a response-to-day life.

Kurt: Absolutely, absolutely! You're absolutely right. I think also, you have to ... so that this is possible, I think, you need just certain limits. If you're constantly on the phone, and a question comes up and you can immediately nachgoogeln, then...

Against 21.30 o'clock the last bell rings, the Show is over or you will receive an Encore, an additional round of appetizers and alcohol. Here you can hear more meaningful than in the short snippets of conversation at the tables. For example, the balance sheets, the "Super, my yet substanziellstes speed Dating" to "bad ... maybe I just got the wrong men". A woman complained of the lack of segmentation ("I am almost 60 and had to discuss with three young men, they were amusing and polite, but I want to meet someone my age"), meanwhile, a man told that he had to find out how much each book characterizing the woman who had selected it, "that was very interesting".

In England flirt on saddles

At another table is about the sense and sensuality of the Bichsel-quote "When I see two people to go on the road to each other and embrace, is my first thought: have discussed the same book to read", next to a shoptalk about other special Flirt-formats – runs, such as in England, where a speed Dating event for Velocracks exists, the brakes with Knowledge of, Saddles, and so on compel want. However, one thing in this review is clear: no one here wants to increase by means of a great reading of the market value; the passion is palpable, is real, even if it has not happened with every Date, the book is the winner of the Evening.

So, now you want to know for sure, what with the promising Heading of this story. The honest answer is: Nothing! Frisch's "Homo Faber" was, as well as Michel Houllebecqs "submission" (or as "mental training for runners", "will happiness Find me?" by Fischli/Weiss and "The Naked Ape" by Desmond Morris, just to name a few), but they never came in that night to get in the way. That was a feint, which you also find in good books ... so that readers remain curious as you are, to the last line in it.
