I somehow missed this author on my European literature curriculum. Doesn't speak well of my high school, but on the other hand, could a teenager really handle the trancelike soliloquoy? These stories are truly awe-inspiring in their descriptiveness, conceptualization, and breadth of imagination. Oh yeah, and it's depressing as hell to be constantly reminded of how much our society sucks.
