Robert Walser: Selected Stories : In her preface to Robert Walser's Selected Stories, Susan Sontag describes Walser as "a good-humored, sweet Beckett." The more common comparison is to "a comic Kafka." Both formulations effectively describe the reading experience in these stories: the reader is obviously in the presence of a mind-bending genius, but one characterized by a wry, buoyant voice, as apparently cheerful as it is disturbing. Walser is one of the twentieth century's great modern masters - revered by everyone from Walter Benjamin to Hermann Hesse to W. G. Sebald - and Selected Stories gives the fullest display of his talent.
