Product Details

Praise

“This is the most under-covered, undervalued release of 2014.”
Flavorwire, 50 Best Independent Fiction and Poetry Books of 2014

“[Weiss] remains among the most important postwar German authors no one’s read.”
Slate, Overlooked Books of 2014

“A moving testimonial to a young man’s strivings for personal freedom… This poetically concise yet propulsive work…paints a portrait of a young artist in his state of becoming.”
3:AM Magazine

“One of the finest, strangest coming-of-age novels you’ve never heard of.”
Barnes & Noble Review

“A remarkable writer… must be counted among the most important European authors of the 20th century.”
The Complete Review

“A dynamic work, a re-creation and exorcism of the past rather than a recollection of it in tranquility…Wholly succeeds in fusing a new realism with a new imaginative vision.”
Times Literary Supplement
