Does anyone out there have the book Tongue Set Free" by the Nobel Prize laureate Elias Canetti? I am looking for the official English translation of a quote on pages 8 and 9 describing the city in which he was born.
It is available through Amazon but would take anywhere from 7-15 days to be sent to Germany and the text has to be back to the customer in 7...

Not in English... Feb 2, 2004

Hi, Rebecca,

Unfortunately, my copy is in Spanish. I hope other translators and readers out there can be of more help.

Cheers,
Atenea

"Rustschuk, an der unteren Donau, wo ich zur Welt kam, war eine wunderbare Stadt für ein Kind. [...] Alles was ich später erlebt habe, war in Rustschuk schon einmal geschehen."(5) Und dann: "Ich kann nur eines mit Sicherheit sagen: die Ereignisse jener Jahre sind mir in aller Kraft und Frische gegenwärtig - mehr als sechzig Jahre habe ich mich von ihnen genährt.

(5) Elias Canetti: Die gerettete Zunge. Geschichte einer Jugend. München 1977, S. 10-11.
(6) Ebd., S. 19.
