Esterhazy's hero is a professional Traveller, commissioned - like Marco Polo by Kubla Khan - to undertake a voyage of discovery, and to prepare a travelogue about the Danube. Communicating his experiences through terse - and at times surreal - telegrams to his employer, the Traveller weaves a rich tapestry of narratives, evoking the dreamlike past and the precarious present of a disappearing world. Moving from the Black Forest to the Black Sea, Esterhazy takes the reader on a fascinating European journey of the imagination, down the Danube River, through Vienna, Budapest, and beyond the delta where the mighty river empties into the sea. Filled with allusion, fable, fantasy, history, and autobiography, The Glance of Countess Hahn-Hahn (down the Danube) is Peter Esterhazy at his best.

Among the best fiction of 1998." --Los Angeles Times Book Review "Brilliant." --New York Times Book Review
