From the author of 'A Man without Qualities,' a novel about spirituality in the modern world.Agathe is the sister of Ulrich, the restless and elusive ';man without qualities' at the center of Robert Musil's great, unfinished novel of the same name. For years Agathe and Ulrich have ignored each other, but when brother and sister find themselves reunited over the bier of their dead father, they are electrified. Each is the other's spitting image, and Agathe, who has just separated from her husband, is even more defiant and inquiring than Ulrich. Beginning with a series of increasingly intense ';holy conversations,' the two gradually enlarge the boundaries of sexuality, sensuality, identity, and understanding in pursuit of a new, true form of being that they are seeking to discover.Robert Musil'sThe Man Without Qualitiesis perhaps the most profoundly exploratory and unsettling masterpiece of twentieth-century fiction.Agathe, or, The Forgotten Sisterreveals with new clarity a particular dimension of this multidimensional bookthe dimension that meant the most to Musil himself and that inspired some of his most searching writing. The outstanding translator Joel Agee captures the acuity, audacity, and unsettling poetry of a book that is meant to be nothing short of life-changing.
