'one of the most prestigious novels of the 20th century'. A very pleasing near-fine set of the Austrian writer's masterpiece.

The Man Without Qualities has been described as 'one of the most prestigious novels of the 20th century... Some novelists excel at giving the reader the emotional feel of a character's mind (Dickens), others at the sensuous feel of a character's mind (Flaubert). Musil is wonderful at both' (Smiley).
