Meet the Author

Robert Musil, born in Klagenfurt, Austria, in 1880, was the most important novelist writing in Germany in the first half of this century. At the age of twenty-six, after the success of his first novel, he abandoned an academic career in philosophy to devote himself entirely to writing. His voluntary exile in Switzerland after the Anschluss resulted in the banning of his works in Germany. The Man Without Qualities to which he devoted the last twenty years of his life remained uncompleted at the time of his sudden death in Switzerland in 1942.
