Walser Takes New York

A Schoolboy’s Diary—a new collection of short stories by Robert Walser—is being celebrated in New York this month.

On Tuesday, September 10, at 7pm, 192 Books hosts a discussion of the book between translator Damion Searls and experimental poet Mina Pam Dick (author of I Am the Robert Walser).

Then, on Friday, September 27, also at 7pm, Ben Lerner (who wrote the book’s introduction) and Damion Searls will celebrate the book in conversation at BookCourt.

Nicholas Lezard of The Guardian says that “everyone who reads Walser falls in love with him.” See why.
