Contributed by Julia Cozzarelli

 James Pfrehm, Assistant Professor of German, recently published his textbook Kunterbunt und kurz geschrieben with Yale University Press. 

 Kunterbunt und kurz geschrieben is an intermediate-level German reader that can be used as either the main text in a conversation course or a supplementary text in an intermediate grammar review course. Pfrehm's innovative approach includes text and audio podcasts of German short stories that are distinctly different from canonical texts studied in upper-level courses. Some of the features of the book include topical, engaging, and often humorous modern short stories; a grammar activity in each chapter; and video podcasts of short stories created by Pfrehm.
