Logarithms and "friend" suggestions will never totally replace the anxious and arbitrary means by which I travel from book to book. Yesterday I was sort of between books. A friend of mine called and asked if I could take him to doctor's residence. Sure, I quipped and ignoring my haggard state of toilette - I'd been tooling around in the yard -- I grabbed Berlin Stories from atop a stack and headed out the door. There are many stacks in our hose. My wife would add there are TOO many stacks. I hadn't thought of this particular tome at all lately.

I was prepared to dislike Berlin Stories. Despite many efforts I still don't "like" Bruno Schulz. I was ready for a similar encounter here. My, was I ever mistaken. Berlin Stories is a series of sketches of the metropolis, many reflect a gaping wide-eyed perspective. This appears apt as the most modern city in the world engulfs the reader. The trams and the stand-up restaurants are viewed as marvels. The regal nature of the posh neighborhoods doesn't alienate the visiting stroller, it encourages. The anxiety of penury is quickly muffled by these dazzling displays. It is interesting to contrast these views of Berlin with Alfred Doblin's.

I will likely pursue the other Walser works now.

This is a series of short essays about Berlin in the first decade of the 20th century and some of its people, sometimes with praise and other times satire. The writing is clever, full of surprising but clear images. Reading one after the other, however, they tend to loose their punch and feel repetitious; better read in spurts. ( )

Disappointing. Not so much stories as journalistic sketches, many of which are also much alike and not very interesting. ( )

Oh, Walser. I'm woefully behind in reviews, and yet more people need to read you; at the same time, I'm not sure that any words can adequately convey the experience of reading your prose.

This collection of stories and critical essays compiles the work that Walser produced during his time in Berlin. One can feel the allure of the city, the possibilities and dreams that Walser felt in every fiber of the city—from the parks and gardens, to the people congregating on the streets, from the theatre to the literary life—and yet one can also sense an underlying melancholy, a growing sense of malaise as the pieces progress chronologically, not seeing Walser fulfill his goals, forced to return to Switzerland just on the bring of a world war.

In her introduction to Microscripts, Susan Bernofsky notes that we can't know for sure when Walser began writing in microscript form. Many of these pieces here in Berlin Stories read like some of his microscript stories, but these are more like vignettes than stories: they run together to create a full portrait of Walser's Berlin, its inhabitants, its pace of life, and his own precarious position in the city as both an outsider and an artist.

The simplicity of Walser's writing is balanced equally by his deft approach to a humanistic view of society and our individual responsibilities to others: his moral approach to life—even something as simple as traipsing through a park and chancing upon a woman reading or a lone bird—suggest that art is as much an every day sentimentality as it is setting thoughts to paper.

This collection ends with Walser examining his own critical output, looking back to his previous work and criticism with a sense of self-exile but also a sense of having accomplished what he set out to do. Hermann Hesse said of Walser: "If he had a hundred thousand readers, the world would be a better place." And so it would. ( )
