Lucky Hans and Other Merz Fairy Tales by Jack David Zipes Lucky Hans and Other Merz Fairy Tales, Paperback (May 2014)

Kurt Schwitters revolutionized the art world in the 1920s with his Dadaist Merz collages, theater performances, and poetry. But at the same time he was also writing extraordinary fairy tales that were turning the genre upside down and inside out. This book gathers thirty-two stories written between 1925 and Schwitters' death in 1948.
