The Street of Crocodiles and Other Stories

By Bruno Schulz
Translated by Celina Wieniewska, Foreward by Jonathan Safran Foer, Introduction by David A. Goldfarb

The untimely death of Polish writer Bruno Schulz at the hands of a Gestapo officer stands as one of the great losses to modern literature, but since his death, word of his extraordinary literary voice has won him an international readership. This volume brings together Schulz's complete fiction, including The Street of Crocodiles, praised by the New York Review of Books as "a masterpiece... marvelously inventive"; his final surviving work, Sanatorium Under the Sign of the Hourglass; and three short stories. Illustrated with Schulz's luminous original drawings, this edition beautifully showcases the distinctive surrealist vision of one of the twentieth century's most gifted and influential writers.
