Montauk. Blubart
Max Frisch

Montauk is a story by Swiss writer Max Frisch. It first appeared in 1975 and takes an exceptional position in Frisch’s work. While fictional stories previously served Frisch for exploring the possible behavior of his protagonists, in Montauk, he tells an authentic experience: a weekend which he spent with a young woman in Montauk on the American East Coast. The short-run love affair is used by Frisch as a retrospective on his own biography.
Bluebeard tells the story of a medical doctor who is accused of murdering his ex-wife. It was Frisch’s last novel. Hans Mayer of Die Zeit called Bluebeard “A beautiful new story, which with Montauk and Holocene clearly rounds off an epic triptych. Reinhard Baumgart of Der Spiegel described it as “very taciturn, yes a quiet book”, and wrote that “In parts, the story truly speaks the embarrassing, suggestive and all but naked language of dreams, of the repression of a very bright and sometimes also too weakly lit dream”.
