Description
German author Arno Schmidt (191479) penned these 35 stories in the 1950s and 60s, in styles ranging from pastoral tales in the tradition of German Romanticism to later forays into the stream of consciousness methods of James Joyce. With the eye of a detached observer, Schmidt often exposes the sexual, historical, and intellectual currents that simmer beneath the superficially placid bourgeois society of postwar Germany. An introduction to the man and his oeuvre is provided by translator John Woods, who won the PEN West Literary Award for one of his previous translations of Schmidt's works.

"That rarest of rarities: an experimental writer who's actually fun to read."Kirkus Reviews
