A novel that blends the real and the fantastic, from "one of the most original imaginations in modern Europe" (Cynthia Ozick)  The Street of Crocodiles in the Polish city of Drogobych is a street of memories and dreams where recollections of Bruno Schulz's uncommon boyhood and of the eerie side of his merchant family's life are evoked in a startling blend of the real and the fantastic. Most memorable - and most chilling - is the portrait of the author's father, a maddened shopkeeper who imports rare birds' eggs to hatch in his attic, who believes tailors' dummies should be treated like people, and whose obsessive fear of cockroaches causes him to resemble one. Bruno Schulz, a Polish Jew killed by the Nazis in 1942, is considered by many to have been the leading Polish writer between the two world wars.   For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

This book was first published, in Polish, in 1934. It began as a series of letters from the reclusive Schulz to a friend, Deborah Vogel. Only two books by Schultz were published before he was murdered by the Gestapo in 1942. His novel, The Messiah, and his unpublished writings were lost.

Schulz's descriptions are like paintings, but more, because the objects are active and sounds, movement and colours all play a part.

"The dark second-floor apartment of the house in Market Square was shot through each day by the naked heat of summer: the silence of the shimmering streaks of air, the squares of brightness dreaming their intense dreams on the floor; the sound of a barrel organ rising from the deepest golden vein of a day; two or three bars of a chorus, played on a distant piano over and over again, melting in the sun on the white pavement, lost in the fire of high noon."

It's impossible to classify this book. It is a comic memoir with Schulz as the young narrator and his eccentric father as the main character. It is a fantasy of the end of the world, an elegy to the death of a Galician town and its way of life. In parts it makes no sense, but if you let the words wash over you, there is meaning all the same.

I really enjoyed this book, though it is not at all the sort of thing I usually read. I got lost, and had to re-read many paragraphs and pages, but because the book is so short there is no rush to reach the end. ( )

This is one of the most beautiful books I have ever read.

This was like looking at one long autumn oil painting in minute detail, inch by inch, as it passes very slowly before your eyes at the same time the sounds and smells of autumn drift in through an open window.

Reading this book clearly brought to mind the many other books that I have read that have tried to do this but failed disappointingly without me ever realising or knowing that there was one book that had managed to pull off this seemingly impossible feat of a physical sense of beauty being manifested by words.

A rare book that I started and didn't finish. It starts strong. The first few stories are filled with beautiful images and innovative uses of the language that promise at great things to come. But even from the first stories, I noticed that they were almost all setting, with very little character building. He seemed to be setting a stage, and I assumed that later characters would come to inhabit this stage. Unfortunately, when the characters do show up, they are very thin and two dimensional. Schulz even references this in a story called "A Treatise on Tailor's Dummies" where he talks about a second genesis, and how the new race of men will only be created to serve a single purpose, some to only utter a single word, and there will be no need to fill in anything beyond this single purpose. It's sort of a prose cubism; he has sentences and paragraphs that give the basic shapes of a character, but they are ultimately flat and abstract.

The utter lack of plots in the stories eventually wore me down. It's a pity that such great prose wasn't linked to something more substantive. ( )

I'm not smart enough to understand anything that happened here. ( )

On reading these stories through only once, I didn't really get much from them beyond a sense of having been raped by adjectives. It was after a second reading that this book came alive in utterly devastating ways. I have no doubt that I would likely get even more out of subsequent readings.

Schulz is certainly the kind of author who can haunt you in unexpected ways long after you thought you finished reading his work. ( )
