A Peter Fabrizius Reader

Selected Stories, Exilia, Verses, and Essays from Two Worlds


Max Knight and Claire Fabry

This book is a kaleidoscope of the diverse literary and journalistic efforts of two Austrian-born friends who use the joint pen name of «Peter Fabrizius.» The collection is a chronicle of a lifetime's work, beginning with humorous short stories written in their youth which have since been translated into seventeen languages. This is followed by their exploits on three continents and their flight from Nazi Europe. Also included are samples of their acclaimed translations of German literature. The body of work concludes with their essays in psychology and philosophy which reflect the mature thinking of their later years.
