A Schoolboy's Diary and Other Stories (2013)

English
4.02 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Walser and I are never going to be best buddies, it seems to me. I really don't have much to say here except that I found this collection thoroughly underwhelming. In the introduction, Mr. Ben Lerner presents us with a few quotationts from such luminaries as W. G. Sebald and Susa...

review 1: Leggere Walser con piacere significa avere un canale ancora aperto con quella dimensione dell'adolescenza nella quale si esita a salutare per sempre l'onnipotenza dell'infanzia. Si gioca malinconici, si studia guardando i monumenti di fotosintesi fuori dalla finestra, si tradisce...

review 1: The man could write but I finished feeling annoyed - wanted to shake the main character by the shoulders and tell him to DO something with his life. I saw many reviewers rave about is light, airy touch. It's pretty but I prefer more substance - tell me a story and/or give me char...

review 1: WALSER, Robert: „Geschwister Tanner“, Frankfurt 1983Dieses Buch habe ich mehrfach zur Hand genommen und erst nach Jahren des Besitzes – ein Geschenk meines Freundes Franz Jantsch – zu lesen begonnen. Es führt in eine andere Zeit, in eine andere Welt. In eine Zeit, wo es noch Köch...
