"Wolfgang Hilbig is an artist of immense stature," László Krasznahorkai, recipient of the 2015 International Man Booker Prize and author of Satantango and Seiobo There Below
"Evokes the luminous prose of W.G. Sebald. . . . Hilbig’s masterly work captures the angst of a man unable to escape the wreckage of his past." The New York Times
"Out of the ugliness of history and the wasted landscape of his home, he has created stories of disconsolate beauty." The Wall Street Journal

[Hilbig writes as] Edgar Allan Poe could have written if he had been born in Communist East Germany.” Los Angeles Review of Books
"Hilbig’s prose is vivid and poetic, and a Kafkaesque touch gives these stories ample atmosphere." Publishers Weekly
Beautiful, dream-like stories of the pain and wonder of becoming oneself.” Die Zeit
Wolfgang Hilbig is on the track of the truth. Once he has found it, he is not afraid to look it straight in the face.” Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
Pure, masterful . . . a calmly, powerfully flowing stream of words that stops time like an endless spell of intoxication.” Süddeutsche Zeitung
