About the Author

The greatest novelist of the netherworlds, of darkness stretching on beyond just death, Alexander Lernet-Holenia (1895-1977) was born into the aristocracy of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. His many poems, plays, and novels are among the greatest works of modern German literature and Count Luna is his masterpiece.

Reviews

Daunting panache, fast-moving, cleverly convoluted, terrific.--Eileen Battersby
Brilliant, extra stylish, excellently written and fearsomely gripping.
Austrian writer Lernet-Holenia (Mona Lisa, 1897-1976) addresses guilt over WWII in this masterly novel, originally published in 1955....Lernet-Holenia's dark humor propels the narrative, and Jessiersky's obsession is expertly handled, leading to a wholly unexpected conclusion. Driven by intense psychological descriptions, this tale of inaction against injustice has aged quite well.
