Hesse is one of those writers who seem to write the same book in a dozen different ways - and yet you still want to read them. This collection of short stories shows a wider range - and some of the youthful experiments of the brilliant Hesse. There are haunting, amusing and bizarre tales - and yes, some that miss the mark but are interesting nonetheless for showing the growth of an author.
