"The 173 stories collected in Alexander Kluge's The Devil's Blind Spot range from a dozen pages to just half a page in length: these tales, like novels in pill form, are arranged in five chapters. The first group illustrates the little-known virtues of the Devil; the second explores love (from Kant to the opera); the third (entitled "Sarajevo Is Everywhere") addresses power; the fourth considers the cosmos; and the fifth ranges all our "knowledge" against our feelings."--Jacket.
