    In these memoirs, Braz Cubas, a wealthy nineteenth-century Brazilian, examines (from beyond the grave) his rather undistinguished life in 160 short chapters that are filled with philosophical digressions and exuberant insights. A clear forerunner of Gabriel García Márquez and Jorge Luis Borges, Epitaph for a Small Winner, first published in 1880, is one of the wittiest self-portraits in literary history as well as “one of the masterpieces of Brazilian literature” (Salman Rushdie).

    In her preface to Robert Walser’s Selected Stories, Susan Sontag describes Walser as “a good-humored, sweet Beckett.” The more common comparison is to “a comic Kafka.” Both formulations effectively describe the reading experience in these stories: the reader is obviously in the presence of a mind-bending genius, but one characterized by a wry, buoyant voice, as apparently cheerful as it is disturbing.Walser is one of the twentieth century’s great modern masters—revered by everyone from Walter Benjamin to Hermann Hesse to W. G. Sebald—and Selected Stories gives the fullest display of his talent. “He is most at home in the mode of short fiction,” according to J. M. Coetzee in The New York Review of Books. The stories “show him at his dazzling best.”
