H. C. Artmann
The Quest for Dr. U
Artmann, born in 1921, is one of the most remarkable experimental writers of his generation. An Austrian, in the 1950s he was the founder of “The Vienna Group” with Rühm, Bayer, Wiener and Achleitner. The group’s black romanticism allied with a linguistic scepticism partly derived from Wittgenstein had a great influence on German letters. The Quest for Dr. U is like all Artmann’s works: protean, spanning and subverting all genres (detective fiction, romantic novels, heroic poetry, dada related experiment).

J.-K. Huysmans
Becalmed
A translation of En Rade. Huysmans’ Becalmed is the novel he wrote between his two most famous works, Against Nature and Down There, and has a similar protagonist in search of spiritual shelter. “A haemorrhage of ordure,” Huysmans calls it, and only he is capable of descriptions of such Gothic intensity.

Gerhard Roth
the autobiography of albert einstein
Gerhard Roth’s first “novel” is a triumphant refutation of the death of modernism: a lucid, morbid and impossible account of what cannot be said, a deranged existence pieced together, an individual at total odds not only with the world and its structures, but with the chemical and biological basis of his own thought.
