Product description

The Assistant by Robert Walser -- who was admired greatly by Kafka, Musil, Walter Benjamin, and W.G. Sebald -- is now presented in English for the very first time. Joseph, hired to become an inventor's new assistant, arrives one rainy Monday morning at Technical Engineer Karl Tobler's splendid hilltop villa: he is at once pleased and terribly worried, a state soon followed by even stickier psychological complexities.
