From 1899 until he was misdiagnosed as a schizophrenic and hospitalized in 1933, Walser produced nine novels and more than 1,000 short stories and prose pieces. This collection offers a representative selection of Walser's work, from his first published fiction to the stately prose of the last years before he vanished forever behind the asylum walls.
