Book: Strange News From Another Star by Herman Hesse


Strange News From Another Star is a mesmeric collection of short stories by Herman Hesse. The prose is beautiful and the fairy-tale type stories are surreal, philosophical and always deeply contemplative. My favourite tales, in order, are: 'Augustus', 'The Poet', 'Iris', and 'Faldum'.
