    Bottom’s Dream
    ( hardcover )

    $70.00 $56.00

    “I have had a dream past the wit of man to say what dream it was,” says Bottom. “I have had a dream, and I wrote a Big Book about it,” Arno Schmidt might have said. Schmidt’s rare vision is a journey into many literary worlds. First and foremost it is about Edgar Allan Poe, or perhaps it is language itself that plays that lead role; and it is certainly about sex in its many Freudian disguises, but about love as well, whether fragile and unfulfilled or crude and wedded. As befits a dream upon a heath populated by elemental spirits, the shapes and figures are protean, its protagonists suddenly transformed into trees, horses, and demigods. In a single day, from one midsummer dawn to a fiery second, Dan and Franzisca, Wilma and Paul explore the labyrinths of literary creation and of their own dreams and desires.

    The short, intense autofiction Youth, translated here for the first time—is a portrait of the little north German town of Greifswald before World War I.

Also included is one of Koeppen’s last works: a short, fragmentary text depicting Wolfgang Koeppen’s return to the town of his schooldays.
