About

Haunting portraits recorded from intriguing perspectives comprise the heart of these essays: not only Heiner Müller, Nietzsche, Goethe, Shakespeare, but also the bust of an unknown Roman. The author follows this physiognomical line to traverse the ages, through reportage, essays, stories, and character sketches.
