Steppenwolf, Paperback Book

Description

'The unhappiness that I need and long for . . . is of the kind that will let me suffer with eagerness and die with lust.

That is the unhappiness, or happiness, that I am waiting for.'Alienated from society, Harry Haller is the Steppenwolf, wild, strange and shy.

His despair and desire for death draw him into an enchanted, Faust-like underworld.

Through a series of shadowy encounters, romantic, freakish and savage by turn, Haller begins to rediscover the lost dreams of his youth. Adopted by the Sixties counterculture, Steppenwolf captured the mood of a disaffected generation that was beginning to question everything.
