The Man Without Qualities
Set in Vienna on the eve of World War I, this great novel of ideas tells the story of Ulrich, ex-soldier and scientist, seducer and skeptic, who finds himself drafted into the grandiose plans for the 70th jubilee of the Emperor Franz Josef. This new translation–published in two elegant volumes–is the first to present Musil’s complete text, including material that remained unpublished during his lifetime.
