Summary (From the publisher):

A virtuoso Fin-de-Siecle Viennese innovator of what he called the "telegram style" of writing, Peter Altenberg's signature short prose straddles the line between the poetic and the prosaic, fiction and observation, harsh verity and whimsical vignette. Inspired by the prose poems of Charles Baudelaire and the Feuilleton - a light journalistic reflection of his day - Altenberg carved out a spare, strikingly modern aesthetic that speaks with an eerie prescience to our own impatient time.
