About the Author

Leo Perutz, a contemporary of Franz Kafka, was born in Prague in 1882 and lived in Vienna until the Nazi Anschluss, when he fled to Palestine. He returned from Israel to Austria in the early fifties and died there in 1957. Now recognized as a twentieth-century master, he is the author of eleven novels that blend varying degrees of history, legend, suspense, and the fantastic.

Reviews

A triumph . . . This is a masterly novel from a great modern writer.
A tantalizing blend of the occult and the laughable, of chaos and divine order . . . Much of what Perutz depicts is eternal.
Perutz spins magic realism worthy of Gabriel Garc a M rquez in these haunting, melancholy, grown-up fairy tales.
Perutz leads the reader into an enchanted world. . . . A very human book by a very skillful writer.
Perutz spins magic realism worthy of Gabriel Garcia Marquez in these haunting, melancholy, grown-up fairy tales.
