Stories translated by Deborah Holmes
Edited by Helen Constantine
Situated on the cusp of West and East, between the foothills of the Alps and the mighty "Blue Danube," Vienna has long presented authors with a wealth of material for stories that entertain and intrigue. In these tales the city's famous quality of life and rich variety of cultural offerings is apparent at every turn, but so too is its darker side, whether it be the Viennese obsession with death and decay or the dramatic, tragic events of its twentieth century history. The collection concentrates on stories set at the city's margins, offering new perspectives on this well-explored and much-loved city.
Featuring stories by Arthur Schnitzler, Joseph Roth, Alexander Kluge, and others.
