    Ever Read Bruno Schulz?

    He's one of my favourite writers. A magical realist I suppose.

    Here's some of his short stories online...

    I looked him up in Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruno_Schulz. He was a Polish-jewish author during WW2, killed by a Nazi in 1942.

    "Bruno Schulz (July 12, 1892 – November 19, 1942) was a Polish Jewish writer, fine artist, literary critic and art teacher.[1] He is regarded as one of the great Polish-language prose stylists of the 20th century. In 1938, he was awarded the Polish Academy of Literature's prestigious Golden Laurel award. Several of Schulz's works were lost in the Holocaust, including short stories from the early 1940s and his final, unfinished novel The Messiah. Schulz was shot and killed by a German Nazi in 1942 while walking back home toward Drohobycz Ghetto with a loaf of bread."

    There is a lot more about him and his work in the Wikipedia article.

    I've read a couple of his short stories in the link to the first post and greatly enjoyed them.
