A masterly translation of one of the first great modernist novels by one of the German language's greatest poets, in which a young man named Malte Laurids Brigge lives in a cheap room in Paris while his belongings rot in storage. Every person he sees seems to carry their death within them and with little but a library card to distinguish him from the city's untouchables, he thinks of the deaths, and ghosts, of his aristocratic family, of which he is the sole living descendant.
Suffused with passages of lyrical brilliance, Rilke's semi-autobiographical novel is a moving and powerful coming-of-age story. Read more Read less.

The Notebooks Of Malte Laurids Brigge
This book is sporadic. Some of the entries will really stun you, and others are tedious. The plot is skeletal, more a scaffold than a structure, but the real reason to read this book is because Rilke is brilliant, and you will find so very many good books that act like books in your life, but very few or none like this. It is one of those wonderful little unique experiences in the world.

Sometimes I think there is nothing so valuable in this over-crowded world as weirdness, because there is far too much normalcy, and the more millions of normal people who bump into each other, the more loudly they start complaining about how the little guy, the average citizen is being ignored, squeezed, blah blah blah.
