Editorial Reviews


"A perceptive... visionary insight into the panorama of our existence." - Max Brod

"[Kupfer] is magnificently conceived, with a sizzling hate that burns through the pages... For many years I have not held a book in my hands which expresses that... 'school-feeling' as memorably as here... It is a living book." - Kurt Tucholsky

"Anthea Bell's translation has a nightmarish clarity that puts one in mind of Tom Brown's Schooldays re-written by Kafka." - Guardian

About the Author

Friedrich Torberg was born in Vienna in 1908 to a Jewish family. He worked as a critic and journalist in Vienna and Prague, until 1938 when he was forced to emigrate to France as a result of Nazi persecution. Moving to America, Torberg was nominated by New York PEN-Club one of the ten outstanding German Anti-Nazi writers. He worked as a Hollywood scriptwriter and for Time magazine until 1951, when he returned to Vienna where he died in 1979.
