Robert Walser Goes To Brooklyn

Read two tantalising samples from Susan Bernofsky's translation of Robert Walser's Microscripts at Brooklyn Rail (a fine publication).

With regard to prettiness and its absence, beautiful women are perhaps too self-preoccupied for purposes of Europeanness and may not have time to pursue so time-consuming a business as Europeanism with all its obligations.

Odd and enjoyable little texts written in high style on the back of telegrammes, book covers and the like.
