The Walk and Other Stories.

First edition, first printing of this translation from the German by Christopher Middleton. “Like Kafka, Robert Walser had his own original visions of things, exploring the abyss of this age. In these expressionist stories existence has a fragile kingfisher brilliance spiraling incessantly between heaven and hell. Walser’s writings are forerunners of the spectral ‘minimalism’ of Samuel Beckett.” (Selten)
