Product Description


Transforming Switzerland into a playground . . . Walaschek s Dream uses a painting by Klee as the foundation of [a] game of life and death: the fates, separate and yet intertwined, of Servette soccer player Eugene Walaschek and the painter Paul Klee unraveling as a result of war . . . are the men doomed, asks the writer at the end of this staggeringly virtuosic narrative, or can they hope to triumph by way of the work of the artist-creator? --Isabelle Martin --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
