Anyone who enjoys the prose of August Strindberg will find something of interest in this collection of stories. As is to be expected of Strindberg, the stories are imbued with a brooding and melancholic aura, but they are frequently funny, if darkly so.

There are clearly autobiographical elements which must have caused scandals at the time of the book's initial publication (in Scandinavia, anyway!), but over a hundred years later, these elements simply add to the edginess and vitality of the prose.

I'd love to see Inferno posted here, another great prose work of Strindberg's.
