I need to write a review of this book someday, but anybody who has not read A German Picturesque should do so soon. That is, anybody who demands the highest quality from their literature. Jason Schwartz continues to write short stories and publish them in a select few print periodicals. He is taxing and is the only contemporary writer who never disappoints me in any way. I would recommend this book to demanding readers who enjoy the intellect of Thomas Bernhard and Robert Walser but could do with a little less negativism than these two offer up profusely (which I confess to not ever getting enough of). But the language Schwartz uses is exquisite. The images he produces will flat-out knock your socks off. Jason Schwartz is a master storyteller of the small things in life so vastly important to our life-long pursuit for perfection.
