WALSER, Robert

This paperback edition of Walser's Microscripts adds to the original collection (see below) a handful of microscripts newly translated by Susan Bernofsky includingPencil Sketch in which Walser describes his special need for writing as he does. This book also publishes for the first time Maira Kalman's “Thoughts on Robert Walser,” a collection of paintings and texts created especially for this publication. As Susan Bernofsky notes in her introduction, there is a special affinity between Walser and Kalman: “Just as Kalman herself paints objects in such a way as to give an impression of almost infinite, constantly changing signification, Walser too shows us again and again that ‘We don't need to see anything out of the ordinary. We already see so much.” [publisher's note.]
