From the Publisher. The Tanners captures the lives of five siblings as they wander somewhat at a loss through life, and is Robert Walser's last major novel to be brought into English. The Tanner family’s meetings, separations, quarrels, romances, employment, and lack of employment over the course of a year or two are the threads Walser weaves into his airy, strange, and brightly gorgeous fabric.

All the people in Robert Walser’s books are mad—angry and insane—as are all of us.
