Synopsis: This collection of stories, written by one of the twentieth century's great German writers and a major influence on Kafka, makes up a haunting collage of Europe in the early part of the century

About the Author: ROBERT WALSER (1878–1956) was born in Switzerland. He left school at fourteen and led a wandering and precarious existence while producing essays, stories, and novels. In 1933 he abandoned writing and entered a sanatorium—where he remained for the rest of his life. "I am not here to write," Walser said, "but to be mad."
