Hans-Ulrich Treichel

Daybreak

Daybreak leads into the centre of Hans-Ulrich Treichel’s writings, up and close to the pain points of loss and forlornness. This is the powerful, doleful story of a woman who tries to finally say everything she never said before at her child’s deathbed. And who, in the end, has to acknowledge that words fail her.

Martin Walser

Runaway Horse

»Helmut and Sabrina Halm have always managed vacations of lazy privacy in their favourite retreat on Germany’s Lake Constance. So when the energetic, handsome Klaus Buch turns up with his beautiful wife Hella, Helmut is quite ready to dismiss this dimly familiar acquaintance. But Klaus is overjoyed to recognise his old schoolmate Helmut, eager to recall every incident of their shared childhood, and to display every detail of his successful lifestyle as a thoroughly emancipated, thoroughly fit, author and environmental expert. The precious days of privacy give way to an unwanted and awkward intimacy, as the Buchs and Halms hike, dine and sail together. Their joint activities aggravate myriad psychological tensions among the four characters, which are all the more intensely ironic for their peaceful veneer, and which must eventually erupt. […] Runaway Horse is an extraordinary novella, that comprises at once the concision and wit of s short story and the grace, narrative intrigue and psychological complexity of a longer novel.« (Book description from the English edition by Secker & Warburg)

Martin Walser

A Gushing Fountain

»[T]his masterful novel by one of the foremost figures of postwar German literature is an indelible portrait of Nazism slowly overtaking and poisoning a small town. Semiautobiographical, it is also a remarkably vivid account of a childhood fraught with troubles, yet full of remembered love and touched by miracle.

Robert Walser

The Assistant

Robert Walser is an overwhelmingly original author with many ardent fans: J.M. Coetzee (»dazzling«), Guy Davenport (»a very special kind of whimsical-serious-deep writer«), and Hermann Hesse (»If he had a hundred thousand readers, the world would be a better place«). Charged with compassion, and an utterly unique radiance of vision, Walser is as Susan Sontag exclaimed »a truly wonderful, heart-breaking writer.«
