About this product
- DescriptionTells the story of a dreamer on a journey of self-discovery. This novel is a hybrid of love story, tragedy, and farce, with a protagonist who sweet-talks teaspoons, flirts with important politicians, plays maidservant to young boys, and uses a passer-by's mouth as an ashtray. It aims to spoof the stiff-upper-lipped European petit bourgeois.
- Author BiographyRobert Walser (1878-1956), the Swiss-German master of high modernist prose, was once so well known that the novelist Robert Musil, reviewing Franz Kafka's first book of stories, described Kafka as a special case of the Walser type. Susan Bernofsky is an assistant professor of German at Bard College and the translator of short prose by Walser, Masquerade and Other Stories, and Gregor von Rezzori's Anecdotage.
