New York. Farrar, Straus & Giroux. 1982. First Printing. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine, slight shelfwear and tanning to fore edge. Jacket Condition: Near Fine, slight discoloration at edges over time. 194 pp.

These short stories, latent in the imagery in Kafka and the writing of Hesse and Benjamin, are collages set with narratives and settings built to break. As Walser himself described, everything he writes is contribution to "a variously sliced-up or torn-apart book of myself." The fragmentary discourse and existential cruelty that ruthlessly, beautifully startles this collection of short fiction makes Walser's influence on writers like Kafka seem imminent, in a kind of writing that discursively staged its character's annihilations in a way that would develop further over the next century. 

Forward by Susan Sontag. 
Trans. from the German by Christopher Middletown & others.
