With his epic trilogy, The Sleepwalkers, Hermann Broch established himself as one of the great innovators of modern literature. Even as he grounded his narratives in the intimate daily life of Germany, Broch was identifying the oceanic changes that would shortly sweep that life into the abyss.
"The Sleepwalkers bear[s] witness to Broch's possession of something more than acute psychological insight, something other and much rarer than a gift for storytelling. Reading them, we are haunted by the strange and disquieting feeling that we are at the very limits of the expressible...Broch performs with impeccable virtuosity."--Aldous Huxley
