Publisher's Summary

Ulrich, der Mann ohne Eigenschaften, nimmt sich im August 1913 für ein Jahr "Urlaub vom Leben", nachdem seine Versuche, ein berühmter Mann zu werden, kläglich gescheitert sind. Nun sucht der Mathematiker, Charmeur und Zyniker nach neuen Zielen und Sinn. Er wird Sekretär bei den Planungen des 70. Thronjubiläums des österreichischen Kaisers Franz Joseph I., das immer größenwahnsinnigere Ausmaße annimmt.

In seinem Jahrhundertwerk entfaltet Musil ein buntes Weltpanorama. Er beschreibt darin die Konflikte und Herausforderungen des modernen Lebens und nimmt den Zusammenbruch der K.-u.-k.-Monarchie literarisch vorweg.

Superb performance

This fantastic novel gets memorable treatment from Wolfram Berger’s reading — at once lively and droll, really savoring the humor and music of Musil’s prose. Addictive, immersive, enthralling.
