Fleur Jaeggy

“Stefan Zweig, in his 1941 autobiography, “The World of Yesterday”—one of the great accounts of life in Europe in the first part of the twentieth century—writes about the artists he met in Paris, three decades earlier, who were scattered and destroyed in the murders, exiles, and chaos of two world wars. He describes writers like Rilke, who wanted only “to link verse to verse perfectly in quiet yet passionate endeavor.” “You felt almost ashamed to look at them,” he writes, “for they led such quiet lives, as if inconspicuous or invisible.” This is the Mitteleuropa lineage that produces, in our day, a writer like Fleur Jaeggy.”  – Sheila Heti
