The Hand or, Confession of an Executioner. Translated by Susan Brownsberger.

A very nice bright copy in original dust-wrapper. Almost as new, clean and tight, paper just starting to brown. ; "While in terms of its plot and structure this book may bear a resemblance to something like The Good Soldier Schweik or Tristam Shandy, linguistically it is absolutely Rabelaisian. It is a monologue, nasty, morbid, frightful, rampant with a cadence resembling biblical verse. To drop yet another name, this book sounds like Jeremiah: laughing " Joseph Brodsky, 1987. ; 8.58 X 5.67 X 1.02 inches
