This collection brings together the author's stories, letters, articles and drawings in one volume for the first time. It is a book that finally does justice to one of the most remarkably gifted and influential writers of the 20th Century. Born in 1892, Schulz lived in Galicia where he taught art in a secondary school. In 1934, he published a series of stories that received worldwide acclaim. During WW II he lived in a ghetto and was shot to death by the Gestapo in 1942. John Updike calls Schulz "one of the great writers, one of the great transmogrifiers of the world into words." Isaac Bashevis Singer says, "Sometimes he wrote like Kafka, sometimes like Proust, and at time succeeded in reaching depths that neither of them reached."
