FIRST TIME IN PAPERBACK
MAJOR INTERNATIONAL VOICE. Peter Stamm is “one of Europe’s most exciting writers…a writer to read, and read often.” (New York Times Book Review). His earlier works won him fans in Zadie Smith, Tim Parks, and Lorin Stein, among others.
THE COMPLETE WORKS OF PETER STAMM: Other Press is now the publisher of Stamm’s entire oeuvre. We will be publishing AGNES in paperback the month leading up to Stamm’s new novel THE SWEET INDIFFERENCE.
“A kind of parable…simple and haunting.” —New York Review of Books
“Agnes is a moody, unsettled, and elusive little fable—and it’s always interesting.” —Wall Street Journal
“A haunting psychological study.” —The New Yorker
“A provocative and mesmerizing book.” —Publishers Weekly
“An urgent and unsettling read.” —Library Journal
“This short novel should appeal to readers enchanted by [Stamm’s] elliptical style…an extended meditation on the interrelationship between life and fiction.” —Kirkus Reviews
“This tale moves briskly and plausibly toward the dark conclusion it announces at the outset. Stamm manages to dramatize the truism that writers become caught up in the world their words create, that readers become enamored of characters in fiction, and both mourn when characters suffer…gripping…unsettling.” —Booklist
