Sprechen sie mutant iguana?

Little help here? Tausendzeichen, "the blog for incredibly strange books, film, and music," has reviewed James Morrow's new novel, Shambling Towards Hiroshima. We think. Did they like it? Well, at Tachyon, the only German we know is strictly liturgical (yes, that's odd). So we resorted to Google translator:

"If there is something there, then Shambling Towards Hiroshima a satire, with the resources of the tribute works: Loving admiration for trashy film classics Vernichtungswahn dismantled military. Absurd constructed situations and punchlines are plenty of excellent lubricant for the once angeworfenen text like a well oiled unreel film for you. And this picture is now at least just as wrong as this magnificent monument is also built from rubber monsters, dummies and secret projects."

Well, that explains *everything.*

Anyone else want to take a crack at it? Bitte? A free copy of the book to the best "translation" of the above. Knowledge of German not necessary (or even encouraged). Here's the original version. Email us with yours. Danke!
