Reviews

"An accomplished filmmaker as well as a novelist, Kluge was trained as a lawyer and studied cultural theory with Theodor Adorno. An attorney's reserve and gravitas are evident throughout his work. The harnessed energy is incorporated in various forms. . . . In Air Raid, one voice is followed by another--the testimonies of survivors, observations of reporters, explanations by American officers."--On the Seawall
"An extraordinary book by an extraordinary artist, Air Raid might be seen less as a reckoning with the second world war as a manual for grappling with manufactured realities and media-filtered landscapes in the age of the drone."--Financial Times
"Excellently and integrally translated. . . . Exquisite. . . . This multimedia work was ahead of its time, and it's still effective; as long as aerial militarism continues to rain misery on millions, Air Raid remains timely."--Rain Taxi
"A small masterpiece of exploratory fiction."--Verso Books
