Peter Bichsel is arguably the most popular, possibly the most widely read, though maybe not the most critically acclaimed living Swiss German writer. This is the first book in English to be devoted exclusively to Peter Bichsel, and is intended as an introduction for the general reader and as a resource for the specialist.
