About the Author

Hermann Broch (1886-1951) was born in Vienna, where he trained as an engineer and studied philosophy and mathematics. He gradually increased his involvement in the intellectual life of Vienna, becoming acquainted with Ludwig Wittgenstein, Sigmund Freud, and Robert Musil, among others. The Sleepwalkers was his first major work. In 1938, he was imprisoned as a subversive by the Nazis, but was freed and fled to the United States. In the years before his death, he was researching mass psychology at Yale University. The Death of Virgil originally appeared in 1945; his last major novel, The Guiltless, was published in 1950.

Reviews

"The Sleepwalkers bear[s] witness to Broch's possession of something more than acute psychological insight, something other and much rared than a gift for storytelling. Reading them, we are haunted by the strange and disquieting feeling that we are at the very limits of the expressible. . . . Broch performs with an impeccable virtuosity." --Aldous Huxley

"One of the greatest European novels," --Milan Kundera

"One of the few really great original and thoughtful novels of this century." --Stephen Spender
