Inhaltsangabe: An ancient Sumerian bowl becomes the narrator of a comic novel about a young London art appraiser, Rosa, whose appartment is gradually taken over by an uninvited houseguest, a sex-addicted kleptomaniac named Nikki. Tour.

Rezension: Okay, folks, are you ready for a talking bowl? In The Collector Collector author Tibor Fischer has chosen to tell his story from the perspective of an erudite piece of pottery. No mere chachka from Pottery Barn, Fischer's narrator is several hundred years old, has a very long memory, and an astounding command of 5,000 languages. What's more, this bowl has witnessed more human depravity than the Marquis de Sade ever dreamed of: "Things are done in front of me that wouldn't be done in front of pets," it points out. Yet this inanimate object keeps its secrets--until it falls into the hands of Rosa, a London art appraiser with the ability to read the memories of objects and a history that shocks even the usually unflappable urn.

Rosa's sad-sack love life, a kidnapped advice columnist imprisoned in a well, and a kleptomaniac houseguest are just a few of the curve balls Fischer throws into this ribald tale of sex, murder, and frozen iguanas. The Collector Collector will certainly appeal to readers who revel in bad puns, bawdy stories, and wild flights of improbable fancy.
