5.0 out of 5 stars
a beautiful experience, 1 July 2012
I read this book about two years ago after it was recommended by a friend at university. To read this book is to have a wonderful experience in the moment. It conjures up such interesting images. It has been made into a film by the Quay Brothers. I admire the film but i do not think of it too much in relation to the book. The book will create for each reader a different set of images. I gave this book to a writer friend as a thank you after i took her course and i miss it. I need to re-read it in order to revisit the experience i had the first time.
It is worth reading other works by Walser, predominantly they come far shorter than this novel.
READ THIS BOOK
