The Nonsense Book

Don’t we all feel from time to time a bit “schnurpsy”? To be schnurpsy is not a question of age, there are big schnurpses as well as tiny ones, philosophical and naïve ones, arrogant and modest ones. As manifold as the world of the schnurpses is this book: It contains poems, senseless and meaningful at the same time, profound, funny and nonsensical verses, riddles and stories. And that makes it so suitable to be turned into a song cycle and be put on stage.
