At one point, just before he leaves Berlin to chase a girl named Adele. At one point, just before he leaves Berlin to chase a girl named Adele Hitler (no relation), Loeser sees a group of what he thinks are students holding a bonfire outside the library. He assumes it is "some sort of silly art performance" and joins in, cheerfully burning the books of writers he envies.
The Teleportation Accident book. Ned Beauman, The Teleportation Accident. I bought it for the cover but kept reading it because its prose kicked ass and its narrator was kinda a dick.

Ned Beauman was born in 1985 and studied philosophy at the University of Cambridge. Once I started reading the Teleportation Accident I couldn't put it down. His first novel, Boxer, Beetle, won a National Jewish Book Award and the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain Award, and was shortlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize and the Guardian First Book Award. He has recently lived in Berlin, London, Istanbul, and New York.

Publisher: Sceptre, London, 2012. In the declining Weimar Republic, Egon Loeser works as a stage designer for New Expressionist theatre. Here are sluts and scam artists, ghosts and ancient dinosaur-men, all wrapped up in one page-turning plot. Beauman is a writer of audacity and style; his second novel proves him a star on the rise.
He, too, hung in that drop of water, every parameter of his lust encoded in the coefficients of its surface tension, quite ready, if it dried up in the sun-doubled skin-heat, to dry up with it. Then. the redhead noticed him and he dived out of sight so fast he nearly twisted his ankle
