Item description for Boys & Murderers: Collected Short Fiction by Hermann Ungar & Isabel Fargo Cole...
From the author of The Maimed, this complete collection of Ungar's short fiction is translated for the first time into English. Known as the Moravian Dostoevsky for his analysis of the human psyche, Ungar was a writer of unique talent whose life ended prematurely. The stories in this volume, grotesque and comical, explore the depravities of the heart and delusions of the mind. With Prague and his hometown of Boskovice as his settings, Ungar is part of a tradition that includes Franz Kafka and Joseph Roth.
