Jakob von Gunten - Robert Walser I hope to take the time to writer a longer review, but I thought this novel was just amazing. I've yet to read the introduction, but I hope it gives some insight into the translation process, because the langauge was just beautiful. It's a book that I was yearning to reread before I was finished.

The style and feeling of Walser's von Gunten brings to mind Knut Hamson, and particularly his novels Pand and Hunger. The novel Jakob von Gunten lived up to my expectations and then some.
