BOOKS BY ROBERT MUSIL:

The Confusions of Young Törless
1959
At a bleak, isolated military school on the fringes of the Austro- Hungarian Empire, four young cadets - Torless, Beineberg, Reiting and their victim Basini - drift even further away from their school- fellows into a private world of ritual, secrecy and torture.
The Man Without Qualities
1930
Ulrich has no qualities in the sense that his self-awareness is completely divorced from his abilities. He is drawn into a project, the 'Parallel Campaign,' to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Emperor Franz Joseph's coronation in 1918.
Posthumous Papers of a Living Author
1936
This work, written mostly in the Twenties and first published in 1936, is a collection of satirical stories and essays that 'observe human life in the tiny traits by which it carelessly reveals itself.'
