Reviews
"[H]is stories always encompass a world that is brilliantly filtered through his prodigious intellect and deceptively simple style."
--Booklist
"The Selected Stories of Siegfried Lenz, edited and ably translated by Breon Mitchell, offers an ambitious panorama of his slowly changing narratives." --Peter Demetz, New York Times Book Review
