Reviewed by Edward M.V. Plater in Seminar. A Journal of Germanic Studies, 26.4 (November 1990): 346-347. "a clearly written, carefully reasoned interpretation of what is certainly a major aspect of the Geständnisse ... The conclusions she reaches regarding the nature of Heine's religious feeling -- ultimately undefined and paradoxical -- and the reasons for its revival should be of interest not only to Heine scholars but to all who wrestle with the basic questions of existence."

Reviewed by Jurgen Froehlich in German Studies Review 13.2 (May 1990): 340-341. "As Chick states in her conclusion, 'In light of the above observations, the idea that expressionist lyric forms were only zerbrochen, representing a breakdown or dissolution of form, is no longer tenable.' Chick's point is well taken. Her style is clear and readable, and her argumentation is convincing because of a meticulous attention to detail and an exact documentation."

London, UK: Boulevard Books, 1997. pp. 162-163. They write that this is "the unique voice of a brilliant and unusual woman and a very enjoyable book; a translation that is a fine tribute to a person who represents so well the synthesizing and hopeful directions that Weimar culture of the 1920s and 1930s was taking in literature, drama, painting, film and music."

Reviewed by Deanna Evans in Germanic Notes & Reviews 31.1 (Spring 2000). "Luise Rinser, one of Germany's most respected contemporary novelists, is certain to find new fans as readers of English discover Jean M. Snook's Abelard's Love, an excellent English translation of Rinser's Abaelards Liebe (published at Frankfurt am Main, 1991). Snook is to be congratulated for her translation because she conveys not only the words but also the tone and spirit of the original. Snook also provides a valuable introduction which includes a short biography of the novelist, a list of her previously published work, and a brief but cogent critical analysis of the novel itself. Snook had the opportunity to interview Rinser and notes Rinser's explanations concerning her choice of subject matter."

Reviewed by Josef Schmidt in The International Fiction Review 28 (August 2001). "Rinser's treatment of one of the great medieval love stories shows the writer, who at the time of publication of Abelards Liebe (1991) was eighty years old, at the height of her powers. . . . and the translator has picked up Rinser's crisp prose admirably in that one soon forgets that one is reading a 'translation'."

Reviewed by Rebecca Thomas in Modern Austrian Literature 39.3-4 (2006): 142-144. "The sparse, powerful depictions of rural life, discourse, and thought in Grill's short novel of the provinces lose none of their impact in Snook's English translation, Winter Quarters, which commands the reader's curiosity and emotions from the first page to the last."

Reviewed by Edith LaGraziana on “Edith’s Miscellany,” Friday, 23 January 2015. “It’s true that Winter Quarters isn’t a cheerful and entertaining novel. On the contrary it’s really shattering and sad, but unfortunately many women will find the story alarmingly true to life because violence against women keeps being a reality in the twenty-first century. You may be pleased to know that Max receives his well-deserved ‘reward’ in the end, at what price, though!”

Starred review in Publishers Weekly, 8/18/2008: "Austrian author and playwright Jonke addresses a host of existential questions through a cast of vaudevillian compatriots in this slim, beautifully written volume. [. . .] As intricately structured as a musical composition, with recurring conversational motifs, the narrative--powered by Snook's magnificent translation--moves smoothly and evocatively through fraught emotional terrain."

Starred review in Quill & Quire, April 2009.

Mentioned by Paul Wells in Maclean's, May 11, 2009, p. 64: "On April 8, 2009, Hans Eichner died in his sleep. Three days later the first print run of Kahn & Engelmann, in its luminous new translation by Jean M. Snook, arrived from the printer."

The German Book Office chose Kahn & Engelmann as its June book pick, 2009.

Reviewed by Chris Scott in The Globe and Mail, The Daily Review, Monday, July 13, 2009: "Kahn & Engelmann recreates a long-lost way of life. But it also revives a vanished pan-European sensibility. Beautifully written, it may be the last great European novel . . . Memory is the enemy of death, and Kahn & Engelmann is an elegant memorial. If philosopher Theodor Adorno ruled that turning the Holocaust into art is ‘not only immoral but perhaps even impossible,' Hans Eichner has demonstrated it is not only possible and moral but also necessary."

Reviewed by Katy Derbyshire, Berlin, Germany , Friday, 24 July 2009: "The book itself is a beautiful piece of work. Canadian publishers Biblioasis have done what's often considered unthinkable and credited the translator, Jean M. Snook, on the front cover – hats off for that. But hats off too to the seemingly faultless translation, with not a single stumbling block, glaring misunderstanding or unwitting germanism. It seems that the translator worked in close collaboration with the late author, and that has paid off marvellously."

Reviewed by Stephen Osborne in Geist Magazine, December 2009. "At the age of seventy-nine, Hans Eichner, a professor German language and literature at the University of Toronto, published his first novel, Kahn & Engelmann, in German; it was hailed as a masterpiece in Europe. In April 2009, a masterful English translation by Jean M. Snook appeared in Canada, published by Biblioasis, three days after the death of Hans Eichner at the age of eighty-seven."

8. Snook, Jean M. Translation of Gert Jonke's The Distant Sound. Urbana-Champaign, Illinois: Dalkey Archive Press, Illinois State University, 2010. [Der ferne Klang. Salzburg: Jung und Jung.]
Winner of the Austrian Cultural Forum Translation Prize 2009, awarded in New York City
Recipient of the Helen and Kurt Wolff Translator's Prize 2011, awarded in Chicago

Reviewed by Simona Sivkoff in transforum on books March 2010. "Perhaps Jonke is not a prophet of ecological disaster, but he is not filled with boisterous optimism about the future of humanity either. Nor does he easily let the reader off the hook. On the contrary, he suffuses us in the music of destruction that slowly spreads around the planet, and his dreamy, lyrical narrative burns in the flames of a wildfire. With a sarcastic remark, Jonke tells us that the people watching the wildfire with the distant sound coming from the hollowed out corncobs in the background lament not so much the irreversible destruction of the woods, but the fact that they did not cut down the trees themselves and use them for lumber earlier. Sharply, and with underlying humor, Jonke examines human insatiability and recklessness towards self and environment. He creates a lyrical crime novel where the main crime is apathy towards oneself, others, and nature, where the reader often has to wonder whether the narrative is recounting a bad dream or reality, an open ending to a story that is missing the beginning."

Reviewed by Matthew Jakubowski, August 25, 2010. "The Distant Sound feels gargantuan–a dark and dense barrage of riffs and arias, as if the author tried to pour a free-jazz opera into the mold of a three-hundred-page novel. There are no chapters, and no quotation marks. Published in 1979, The Distant Sound is part two of a trilogy that began with Homage to Czerny (translated in 2008), also narrated in part by a composer. It's difficult reading and also stunning, with a tongue-in-cheek style that is, to quote a minor character, 'recklessly extravagant with the most economical means.' Though a challenge, it is Jonke's richest and most inventive novel to be seen in English so far."

Reviewed by Richard Jackson September 2010. "Gert Jonke opens The Distant Sound with a delightfully lyrical, neurotically brilliant, yet utterly baffling lament. [. . .] The composer's own suicide attempt is bound to the self-destructive nature of the human world surrounding him. It is amidst such destruction that Jonke is at his most brilliant. Himself a conductor of serene lyricism, a language that weaves human introspection with an imploding environment, such flare ensures that the smallest calamity – from a mirror smashing to a cupboard collapsing – has the same resonance with the reader as a nuclear explosion. [. . .] Translator, Jean M. Snook, who won the Austrian Cultural Forum's Prize for Translation in 2009, must be congratulated in managing to capture Jonke's playful spirit. The Distant Sound is not a simple read – time and perseverance must be invested. At times, Jonke's purposeful commitment to avoid producing a conventional novel can grow tiresome. However, such is the force of Jonke's words that from a fantastical landscape, littered with paradox, an almost Horatian satire emerges – one that will not be easily forgotten."

Reviewed by Emmett Stinson, of the University of Melbourne, Australia February 1, 2011. "Despite being one of the most respected Austrian writers of the late 20th Century, Gert Jonke remains largely unknown in the English-speaking world. In an excellent introduction to Jonke’s new novel, The Distant Sound, translator Jean Snook helps to explain some of the reasons why this is the case. [. . . ] Despite the seemingly dark, Kafka-esque nature of this material, The Distant Sound is also very much a funny book, filled with humour that recalls the work of absurdist writers like Eugene Ionesco. And it is fittingly full of often-surprising twists and turns that operate with a dream-like logic, resulting in the appearance of a tight-rope walker who can quite literally walk on air, a newspaper staff that spends all day in a train-station café reading newspapers, and the appearance of a horde of strange parasites that may well threaten the future existence of the human race, among many others. [. . . ] overall The Distant Sound is an extremely enjoyable farce, which shows that Gert Jonke is certainly deserving of a much larger English readership."

[Erwachen zum Großen Schlafkrieg. Salzburg: Residenz, 1982.] This translation was my proposal. Refereed by the Board of Dalkey Archive Press.

Reviewed by Kevin Breathnach in the January edition of Totally Dublin, 3rd Jan 2013: When a novel takes as its epigraph, as this one does, a quote by Flann O’Brien’s fictional philosopher, De Selby, the reader should have a fair idea about the road it plans to go down. Time will be derailed, objects usually considered inanimate will be brought to life, and there will be much confusion as to whether the described experiences of the protagonist are occurring on an interior or exterior level. . . . a fugal comedy whose every episode has at its core a question concerning the representation of time and space.

Reviewed by Matthew Jakubowski in The National, Jan 10, 2013. “Imaginative novel Awakening to the Great Sleep War explores abstract love.” Jonke values wildly imaginative representations of reality in his novels. He projects worlds in long, recursive, musical sentences that burst with sophisticated grammar and syntax. Quite often there’s a hyper-intelligent surrealism bridging the narrative and the mind of his protagonist, upsetting the cities and landscape. It makes for humorous, dazzling and demanding fiction, orchestrated to counteract the absurdity of modern life with the imaginative freedom of an individual. . . . Burgmüller is a dreamer, an “acoustical interior designer” who’s recently broken up with his girlfriend . . . The story behind his pain makes him the most fully realised character in Jonke’s translated fiction to date.

Reviewed by Amanda DeMarco in the Los Angeles Review of Books, May 25th, 2013. "Toward Incomparable Ways of Speaking: Gert Jonke’s Languages and Landscapes." Awakening to the Great Sleep War is mainly concerned with Burgmüller's relationships with three women and his interactions with his surroundings, particularly cities. Jonke composes a wildly imaginative, deeply poetic hymn to landscape: "From the light surf on the sun tide, the time that was yet to come pulled many colorfully shining schools of fish to shore with its nonce nets, while the blossoms on the bushes and trees in the parks began to sing." Snook's translation is pure and clean, and her prose has a ceaseless energy that fluctuates gracefully between crisp philosophical enigma and exuberant poeticizing. The world of the novel radiates life and benevolence, but also constant flux and complete disregard for the rules of reality.

Reviewed by Monica Carter, Best Translated Book Award judge, on line, July 2013. A novice translator could easily have mishandled all of Jonke's absurd, surreal concepts and themes, but Ms. Snook understands the nuance in Jonke's text to convey the aims of his novel. With a traditional narrative and story structure, it is easier to be more loyal to the text and more literal. In this case, the translator must also understand the abstract concepts and how to put those conceptual ideas in play without sacrificing the wit of Jonke’s style. Thus, this seems one of the most challenging efforts as far as translation is concerned because the translation must carry through thematically as opposed to carrying the story through a conventional structure. Each word holds more weight so that the subtext is present. To have such intimate knowledge of the writer’s work as well as the language clearly makes this novel the strongest translation on the list.
