Born in Switzerland in 1878, Robert Walser worked as a bank clerk, a butler in a castle, and an inventor's assistant before discovering what William H. Gass calls his "true profession." From 1899 until he was misdiagnosed a schizophrenic and hospitalized in 1933, Walser produced nine novels and more than a thousand short stories and prose pieces.

Walser's contemporary admirers were few but well-placed. They included Franz Kafka, Hermann Hesse, Robert Musil, and Walter Benjamin. Today Robert Walser is widely regarded as one of the most important and original literary voices of the twentieth century. In "Masquerade" and Other Stories, Susan Bernofsky presents a representative selection of Walser's work, from his first published fiction to the stately prose of the last years before his voice vanished forever behind the asylum walls. Written between 1899 and 1933, these 64 sketches, scenes, stories, and wanderings through landscapes and dreamscapes are characterized by startling, skewed comparisons, warpings of syntax, vagaries of perspective, and a delight in contradiction. Quirky, playful, and sometimes bizarre, Walser's texts were unconventional by the standards of the early twentieth century. They are still innovative in the context of today's fiction.

From Library Journal:

As William Gass points out in the forward, Walser was a post-modernist dating back to the first quarter of the century. He loved his food, his beer, and his freedom to ramble in both the Swiss and German countryside and in his own prose, as he does in these 64 short pieces. The "stories" border on essay, on musing, on fantasy, on dreamscape, taking on subjects ranging from ladies' gloves to the gory slaughter of a medieval battle to his own storytelling; and if the narrative doesn't always provide story enough, Walser is often pleasurable in his wit, his outsider's vision, and his uplifting and irreverent good nature. His warm gaiety will not be enough for everyone, but as Hermann Hesse observed of Walser, "If he had a hundred thousand readers, the world would be a better place."-- Peter Bricklebank, City Coll., CUNY
