Comments & Further Information

This is a new issue from Dedalus (previously published by them in 1992). This is a first printing of this new edition which is a B format paperback (130 x 198 mm). Translated from the German by Mike Mitchell and published by Dedalus in 2011. Unread. Comes complete with the publisher’s publicity handout. “Four men led by the Architect of Ruins construct an Armagedon shelter, in the shape of a giant cigar, so that when the end of the world comes they can enter eternity in the right mood, whilst playing a Schubert string quartet. They amuse themselves by telling stories, which take on a life of their own, with walk on parts for Faust, Don Juan da Ponte and G K Chesterton as the narrative flashes back and forth between the Dark Ages and Modern Day, like a literary Mobius strip.” IN STOCK FOR IMMEDIATE DESPATCH
