Walser biographer and translator Susan Bernofsky teams up with writer Rivka Galchen (Atmospheric Disturbances) to introduce stories from and about Walser’s enigmatic microscripts, late texts written on scraps of paper in a millimeter-scale hand, which will be published on May 25 by New Directions and Christine Burgin Gallery. Stories, a trivia quiz with prizes, larger-than-life secret manuscript pictures, and a German penmanship lesson. Advance copies of the book will be available.
