Summary (From the publisher):

"He called himself the Steppenwolf ...
a wolf of the Steppes that had lost its
way and had strayed into the towns
and the life of the herd ..."

Harry Haller is a sad and lonely figure, a reclusive intellectual for whom life holds no joy. He struggles to reconcile the wild primeval wolf and the rational man within himself without surrendering to the bourgeois values he despises. His life changes dramatically when he meets a woman who is his opposite, the carefree and elusive Hermine. The tale of the Steppenwolf culminates in the surreal Magic Theater—For Madmen Only.
