This review is from: Doctor Glas (Hardcover)
A Swedish friend of mine recommended Söderberg to me, as the best Swedish writer of the fin-de-siecle. I have just finished reading it, I would enhance his opinion by saying Söderberg is one of the best fin-de-siecle writers, period. I will not go into depths here, I will only say that this short novel is written in diary form, and that the author displays an amazing control of form and style. It is exquisitely written. I was reading it at the same time as I was reading Kafka's "The Trial", and Kafka did not benefit from comparison.
Enter the dangerously rational mind of Doctor Glas.
