Ever thought, 'There should be a German word for that'? Well, now there is. From the mind that created Schott's Original Miscellany comes a unique volume exploring the idiosyncrasies of the human condition ...auf Deutsch. In which language but German could you construct le mot juste for: a shameful love of bad foods, Sunday-afternoon depression, the lingering sensation of a first kiss, delight at the changing of the seasons, the urge to hoard, the joy of the perfectly wrapped (Christmas) present, or the ineffable pleasure of a cool pillow? For example: Haarmonie - Reassuring your hairdresser. Fussfaust - Instinctively curling up your toes in mortification at someone else's embarrassment. Zwillingsmoral - Reading horoscopes you don't believe in. Gastdruck - The exhausting effort of being a good houseguest. and Kraftfahrzeugsinnenausstattungsneugeruchsgenuss - New car smell.
