(From the publisher):
With its angst-ridden, sensualist hero, Anne Garborg's classic invites comparison with the classic European decadent novels of the turn of the century--Huysmans's Against the Grain and Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray. Unlike the protagonists of those novels, however, the hero of Weary Men is treated with irony. And while it is a brilliant novel of ideas, Weary Men has endured primarily because of the acuity with which Garborg explores the roguish main character's psychological makeup.
