"Of [Schnitzler's] many extraordinary novels and novellas, I recommend "The Road into the Open. The reader is struck by the emotional clarity with which Schnitzler treats autobiograhical material, for the callous, philandering Georg is an aristocratic, de-Semiticized version of himself."--"New York Times Book Review
