There’s been a resurgent interest in the work of Swiss writer Robert Walser (1878-1956) in the last few years, and for American readers unfamiliar with his work, Berlin Stories is as good a place to start as any. Berlin Stories is a collection of feuilletons written for periodicals in the first decade of the twentieth century. As such, the pieces are brief, yet brimming with observations and insights into Berlin’s streets, cultural happenings, and the city’s occupants. Consequently, Walser’s prose sparkles with enumerable details whose very richness makes the places and the people he describes come alive.
