Product Description

Review

Klíma's tale reads like a book that Edgar Allan Poe might have
written if he'd read Nietzsche -- Washington City Paper

The Sufferings of Prince Sternenhoch runs with gale-force
intensity and speed. -- The Education Digest

The non-conformist work of Ladislav Klíma has almost always
shocked, has often incited scandal, but has hardly ever left us
indifferent. -- Václav Havel

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a lovely edition by Twisted Spoon Press of a very peculiar novel. Considering it was written in the 1920s it is fairly obscene: sadomasochism, murder, necrophilia, and other things too perverse to mention here. It tells the story of Prince Sternenhoch, a German aristocrat, how he becomes fascinated with a "plain" woman named Helga and how, as a consequence of this fascination, he slowly loses his mind. Based on Sternenhoch's diary, it traces the Prince's outrageous decline from his warped perspective. The style has a chaotic feel, rich with hallucinations and crazy machinations. A funny and strangely engaging story, especially when Sternenhoch's insanity takes hold.
