The Man Without Qualities, Vol.2: Into the Millennium

The Man Without Qualities, Vol.2: Into the Millennium

By Robert Musil
Translated by Sophie Wilkins & Burton Pike

Set in Vienna on the eve of World War I, this great novel of ideas tells the story of Ulrich, ex-soldier and scientist, seducer and skeptic, who finds himself drafted into the grandiose plans for the 70th jubilee of the Emperor Franz Josef. This new translation--published in two elegant volumes--is the first to present Musil's complete text, including material that remained unpublished during his lifetime.

"Musil belongs in the company of Joyce, Proust, Kafka, and Svevo. . . . (This translation) is a literary and intellectual event of singular importance."--New Republic.
