Posthumous Papers of a Living Author by Robert Musil

Book Description

From one of the greatest novelists of the 20th century, these chiseled essays and sketches written between 1920 to 1929 are playful, moving, exploratory and full of soul and humor. In playful reflections on art and humanity, Musil describes a fly's tragic struggle with flypaper, the guests in a Roman boarding house, the laughter of a horse and more.

During WWI, he served as an officer in the Austrian Army on the Italian front. He died exiled and impoverished in Switzerland in 1942. Author of The Man Without Qualities, Young Torless, and Five Women, Musil is one of the towering pillars of twentieth-century modernism.
