How to describe Fleur Jaeggy? She defies categorization, expectation. Her sentences have a blunt, stunted quality, like stone gargoyles perched above an ancient city, blank-eyed, squat and grey, bits of their noses and ears chipped off. Jaeggy was born in in Switzerland. She speaks German, French, and Italian; she writes in Italian. She has spent most of her life in Italy.

As concentrated as bullets, new stories by the inimitable Fleur Jaeggy Fleur Jaeggy is often noted for her terse and telegraphic style, which somehow brews up a profound paradox that seems bent on haunting the reader: despite a sort of zero-at-the-bone baseline, her fiction is weirdly also incredibly moving. How does she do it? No one knows. Like a magician or a master criminal, who can say how she gets away with it, but whether the stories involve famous writers Calvino, Ingeborg Bachmann, Joseph Brodsky or baronesses or 13th-century visionaries or tormented siblings bred up in elite Swiss boarding schools, they somehow steal your heart.

The Austere Fiction of Fleur Jaeggy

Life began the moment in which we got on board. The beginning is the Proleterka. I used to think Sweet Days of Discipline was my favourite but this novel is far more subtle, real, and painful. And with none of the gothic overtones that creep into so much of her other work. A most dispassionate and restrained coming of age story, it is cold, calculated, yet charged with a deep, sorrowful beauty.
