Maybe This Time, Paperback / softback Book


A spellbinding short story collection by one of Austria's most critically acclaimed authors.

A man becomes obsessed with observing his neighbours.

A large family gathers for Christmas only to wait for the one member who never turns up.

An old woman lures a man into her house where he finds dolls resembling himself as a boy.

Mesmerizing and haunting stories about loss of identity in the modern world. ------- Why Peirene chose to publish this book: 'I love Kafka and here we have a Kafkaesque sense of alienation - not to mention narrative experiments galore!

Outwardly normal events slip into drama before they tip into horror.

These oblique tales exert a fascinating hold over the reader.' Meike Ziervogel, Publisher
