Bela B  Felsenheimer - Scharnow


"Somewhere between a cheerful Twin Peaks episode, a sober William S. Burroughs, and a Douglas Adams in bloodlust."

Spiegel online

"Peppered with absurd slapstick and action, Scharnow is adept, amusing entertainment."

Deutschlandfunk Kultur, Lesart

"This is a timeless book, […] coloured by a special kind of comic book humour that characterises Bela’s songs as well."


"it's absolute fun"


"It's casually pimped trash, the sort of which Quentin Tarantino would love."


"[Felsenheimer] captivates with a well-done characterisation, wit, and a complexly arranged plot”

NZZ am Sonntag

"This blend fits together perfectly."


"This overexcitedness, this quick turning and twisting of plots is fun"

Süddeutsche Zeitung

"the author narrates with exuberant fantasy, subversive wit, an affinity for trash and jokes, and a fine sense for mixing action and absurdity"

Weser Kurier

"Written in a cinematic style, nearly every page of Scharnow is whispering 'Make a movie out of me!'"

Leipziger Volkszeitung

"It's a book like a Quentin Tarantino film – but even more exaggerated and funnier."


"This work is great in all respects."

zdf. de Nachrichten

"This Brandenburg novel playfully crosses the borders of live and death, of earthly and extraterrestrial spheres, […], of space and time."

Luxemburger Tagblatt

"the unconventional story stays entertaining and exciting, the developments are always unusual and unpredictable"

Stuttgarter Zeitung

"Bela B can definitely tell a story."


"Scharnow overflows with curiosities that defy all principles of genre."


"a shrewd finger exercise on 'Pulp Fiction'"


"Here and there are slight parallels with Juli Zeh’s Unterleuten, but his figures are noticeably more absurd, more excessive, and at times even funnier."

Berliner Morgenpost

"More outlandish than anything I’ve read in recent years."

WDR 1 Live

"It's a great joy to unpack the surprises of this grab bag."

Badische Zeitung

"What a crazy and funny book! […] Actually nothing fits together – and yet it does!"

Express am Sonntag

"A murderous pleasure."


"rapid, overloaded, crazy, original, and absolutely wonderful"


"completely wacky Pulp Fiction"

Schwäbische Zeitung

"a literary pill"

Sonntagsblick Magazin

"With Scharnow, the musician Bela B presents an original debut novel."

Nürnberger Nachrichten
