Product Description

A novelist presents newly translated and annotated works of the Viennese satirist who was celebrated by Franz Kafka for his willingness to express unpopular opinions, including the media's manipulation of reality and the dehumanizing nature of technology. 30,000 first printing.

Editorial Reviews

Not fiction, but this book should hold you until another grand-scale Franzen novel appears. Viennese satirist Kraus flourished in the first third of the 20th century, influencing writers like Franz Kafka and Walter Benjamin as he gleefully skewered consumerist excess, media frenzy, and the last-gasp militarism of a doomed empire. Franzen translates his thorny and uncompromising essays while offering extended annotations that pull Kraus into today's culture.
