Summary (From the publisher):

Pleasurable reading was the criterion by which this book of short German fiction was edited and created. It is not a historical survey or a tendentious selectionóbut quite simply a collection of good reading.

...In a geographic sense, the selection was not limited to Germany, but includes Switzerland and several regions of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire.
