Summary (From the publisher):

A masterpiece of emotional extremism and unsparing self-analysis, Anton Reiser tells the story of a gifted outsider driven to near-madness by exclusion from middle-class privilege and academic success. Brought up by members of a mystical Protestant sect, apprenticed to a pious but tyrannical tradesman, and hummiliated as a charity-pupil at school, Reiser escapes into an obsession with literature and the theatre, discovers a strange underworld of impoverished artisan intellectuals, and undertakes long wanderings in pursuit of a theatrical career.
