The local lit blogger Golden Rule Jones has a blog called Wandering With Robert Walser, devoted to the work of the sui generis Swiss author. Jakob von Guenten, his most well-known work, was one of the best books I read last year. I have trouble articulating why I loved it so much--then again, so does J.M. Coetzee, so I'm in good company--but it puts me in the mind of Kafka, Rushmore, The Remains of the Day, and Peanuts.
