Little points in the narrative were unexpected in a refreshing way. Ungar did not have much acceptance in his time, and the only one that decidedly decided in favor of its work was Thomas Mann, who was always impressed by its texts.
Polzer’s ineptness means that he passively watches his school friend whom he idolises waste away from some unknown rot-the-body disease, allows himself to be coerced into a sexual relationship with his landlady, and attempts to cont Franz Polzer, at the centre of this book, is a seriously neurotic, messed up bank clerk in early 20th century Prague whose paranoia, insecurity, social incompetence, and assorted lack of social skills makes this an unsettling, disturbing, and utterly marvellous book.
And even after finishing, the story continued to claw at my mind. Even the moments of exposition are beautifully done. At the same time he must witness the steady physical and mental deterioration of his lifelong friend who is suffering from an unnamed disease. So, this kooky book is about freaks. I think the Prague literary scene in Kafka’s time was really intense and I’m excited to see what else is there.
Polzer meets his childhood companion, a richie Karl, when he is fat and abscessed into an early death bed. Mar 14, Cheryl Anne Gardner rated it it was amazing. He doesn’t know how to stand up to people, so they walk all over him. Lists with This Book. Feb 25, Rita rated it it was ok. This guy doesn’t get any love he can ask for. But each of the characters in this book is truly tragic. Predatory and not about sex either. Nov 05, Ben Arzate rated it it was amazing Shelves: Thanks for telling us about the problem.
Now the rounded woman has been a goddess associated with fertility and life since the Babylonians at least.

Aug 28, knig rated it really liked it Shelves: His novels were influenced by expressionism and psychoanalysis. Of course, in true Eastern European style, any happiness derived from his relationship with Karl is thwarted. I couldn’t put this book down. Both protags are socially inept recluses who fall sexual prey to malevolent fat older women housekeepers.
Los mutilados / The Maimed
The boy looked at Franz Polzer. Refresh and try again. It’s the kind of sexless that thinks about sex all of the time and missing the point.
This book hhermann a deep sense of helplessness and sexual and social lks, it’s queasily hermsnn at times and by the end almost every character seems to have gone insane. The paranoid Karl fears that Sonntag is in a conspiracy with various other people and plans to murder him in his sleep. Franz Polzer, a bank clerk, stuck for decades in a mediocre and brutalizing routine, stays at Klara Porges’ house, a still young widow who enslaves him.
It was a bad day if it was the “Bar fight” episodes. Somos carne en un matadero a punto de ser despiezados Jan 11, Rune Lindgreen rated it really liked it. The narrative crests on a wave of building paranoia echoes of Kraznakohai to be foundwith multiple layers of symbolism, expressionism and dreamworks in the spanner, revolving, of course, around Karl, the Aspergers sexual slave.
It is obvious early on that Franz is almost certainly homosexual. Loos soon as the shadow of his aunt fell across the lighted door, Polzer had known that a woman’s nakedness was something horrid. Fear is hard to sustain before it turns into something else. Ungar presents these characters with their fears and fantasies, their greed, their sadism and their helplessness, with a style that combines the harrowing force of expressionism with the impassive lucidity of objectivism.
While his body of work is not large, this book makes it clear that Ungar deserves to be more well-known than he is. Polzer is twisted up inside to where he’s sexless because he doesn’t leave that room for anyone else. It is really too bad if no one knows what I’m talking about. The climax is violent and quite horrific, but unresolved: Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
None of these is a successful tactic. This was like a combination of the short effects of being scared or horny and taken waaaay too long.
