Pilzer and Pelzer
Edited by Kay Sokolowsky
A house, two men, a widow, numerous opponents – that’s the cast of the ‘adventure series’ Pilzer und Pelzer (1967/1988). For all its qualities as entertainment, however, Ror Wolf’s ingeniously constructed anti-novel in forty chapters is still one of the most radical essays in contemporary literature.
