Product description

Review

"Jonke derives a concatenation of the measured and the menacing." -- M. Swales

"The career of Austrian novelist and dramatist Gert jonke presents a story of unclouded acclaim." -- Vincent Kling

"An important voice in the contemporary German-language literary scene ... Jonke has achieved what his American counterparts merely dream of: highly experimental fiction that is both entertaining and accessible."

Starred Review: Jonke addresses a host of existential questions through a cast of vaudevillian compatriots in this slim, beautifully written volume . . . As intricately structured as a musical composition, with recurring motifs, the narrative powered by Snook s magnificent translation moves smoothly and evocatively through fraught emotional terrain.
