The stories in this collection are rich, tangled, and suffused with mystery and wonder. In the narrowing, winding city streets, strange figures roam. Great flocks of birds soar over rooftops, obscuring the sun. Cockroaches appear through cracks and scuttle across floorboards. Individuals careen from university buildings to dimly lit parlour rooms, through strange shops and endless storms. Crowded with moments of stunning beauty, the stories in this collection showcase Schulz's darkly modern sensibility, and his status as one of the great transformers of the ordinary into the fantastical.

"An accessible, exhilarating introduction to Schulzs oeuvre." --The Washington Post Stanley Bills translations come as an invigorating reminder of the uncanny verbal sorcery behind this unique voice and vision.... The results, hauntingly phrased, can be suitably weirdbut never impenetrable... Bill catches the outrageous wit of Schulzs nightmare tableaux, --The Wall Street Journal

Övrig information

Bruno Schulz was a Polish Jewish writer and artist who has influenced writers including Salman Rushdie, Roberto Bolao, David Grossman and Cynthia Ozick. He was born and lived most of his life in the town of Drohobych, once part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, then Poland, and now part of Ukraine. He published two collections of short stories - Cinnamon Shops and The Sanatorium Under the Sign of the Hourglass - during his lifetime. Schulz was shot and killed by a German SS officer in Drohobych in 1942. His unfinished novel, The Messiah, was lost in the Holocaust.
