'A tour de force' - Evening Standard Fraulein Else's stay with her aunt at a fashionable spa resort is interrupted by the arrival of an express letter. The letter is for Fraulein Else, an end to innocence. Into Else's nineteen-year-old romantic, capricious thoughts enter new, upsetting realities, and a new unwelcome power comes to exert itself over her. Schnitzler's novella is an extraordinary exercise in character, as compelling as it is psychologically acute. A piercing story of power and sexuality, Fraulein Else shows how brittle decency can be, how venal life.

Schnitzler's brilliant novella -- Desmond Christy Guardian Schnitzler was a remarkable and versatile talent who adapted for his artistic purposes both the new techniques of psychoanalysis and what was later to be known as the stream of consciousness -- John Bayley Times Literary Supplement What makes it a tour de force is that the story is told, in a superbly sustained stream-of-consciousness, entirely from Else's point of view -- Gilbert Adair Evening Standard
Arthur Schnitzler (1862-1931) was born in Vienna, the son of a prominent Jewish doctor, and studied medicine at the University of Vienna. In later years he devoted his life to writing and was successful as a novelist, dramatist and short story writer. His novels Dying, Casanova's Return to Venice and Late Fame are also available from Pushkin Press. Schnitzler's work shows a remarkable ability to create atmosphere and a profound understanding of human motives.
