by Hesse, Hermann.
Farrar, Straus, & Giroux,,
A Newar Fine tight copy in a Very Good price-clipped dust jacket with a closed edge tear to the front flap. This is a collection of short autobiographical pieces that Hesse wrote over the course of his long life. In fact they are more like fragments, discontinuous and in some places covering the same ground, but from different angles. The introduction makes it clear that Hesse wrote his own life into all of his stories, using elaborate aliases, shifting scenes and generally mixing up the whole business of story-telling and magic making in a very complex whole.
