Does anybody know something about the problems of the publisher Matthes & Seitz Berlin to release the biography by Guy Wagner?

Well ... there have been problems, yes, but now, at last, all readings and corrections have been made. The book will have 535 pages (+1), more than 250 illustrations and documents and the family trees of Korngold's and Luzi von Sonnenthal's families for 5 generations.
It should be printed right now.
On the homepage of the editor Matthes & Seitz you find detailed indications (in German, of course).
Thanks for having worried about the book.
So did the author.
Kind regards
Guy Wagner
