This is the book I'm talking about. Here's why you should read it.
1. It's brilliant.
2. It won't take long if you're in a hurry. On the other hand, if you have time, it's a book to savour.
3. Isaac Bashevis Singer has said that Schulz "wrote sometimes like Kafka, sometimes like Proust, and at times succeeded in reaching depths that neither of them reached."
4. "Bruno Schulz was one of the great writers....[His] verbal art strikes us—stuns, even—with its overload of beauty."—John Updike
