In Margret Schaefer's third collection of newly translated fiction from Schnitzler, we find him focusing a clear and unforgiving eye on the minds of men who desire, fantasize about, and try to relate to women. Young or old, they are all bachelors-a young officer (Lieutenant Gustl), a socially desirable lawyer (The Murderer), a middle-aged physician (Doctor Graesler), an aging roue (Casanova's Homecoming).

Schaefer's prizewinning earlier translations of Arthur Schnitzler's novellas and stories, in Night Games and Desire and Delusion (both published by Ivan R. Dee), were widely praised ("Superlative fiction."-Kirkus Reviews). She lives in Berkeley, California.
An undervalued genius. * John Simon * In Margret Schaefer's superb translations, Arthur Schnitzler reemerges as a riveting storyteller. -- Sandra M. Gilbert Schnitzler really can see into souls and give voice to the chaos he finds there. -- Leo Carey * The New Yorker * The tales of Arthur Schnitzler-especially as rendered in Schaefer's clear, uncluttered translations-are many suggestive, allusive, and dreamlike things. -- Chris Lehmann * The Instrumentalist * A fine selection of a crucial body of work, well worth rediscovering: humane, satirical, and magnificent. * Village Voice * Each piece is as clear as a its penetrating analysis of male ambiguities, perversities, and psychology....An excellent collection. * Midwest Book Review * Psychologically fascinating. * Publishers Weekly *
