Revised edition. Smudge on page ridge. 1998 Trade Paperback. 348 pp. A translation of the Nobel Prize winning novel by the 19th century Norwegian author, with a new introduction by Isaac Bashevis Singer. Mysteries portrays an enigmatic man suffering from schizophrenia. In a small Norwegian coastal town, society's carefully woven threads begin to unravel when an unsettling stranger named Johan Nagel arrives. With an unsparing and often brutal insight into human nature, Nagel draws out the seemingly innocent townsfolk, exposing their darkest instincts and suppressed desires. At once arrogant and unassuming, righteous and depraved, sane and truly mad, Nagel seduces the entire community even as he turns it on end--before disappearing as suddenly as he arrived.
