From Our Editors

The original inspiration for Stanley Kubrick's final masterpiece Eyes Wide Shut, this is the haunting and erotic story of a doctor who discovers his wife's history of elaborate sexual fantasies. He sets out on an imaginative journey in which he encounters dissolute pianists, mysterious and sinister coachmen, corrupt nuns, and bizarre masked orgies, and is all the while forced to look anew at his long marriage. Arthur Schinitzler's Dream Story is a riveting novel that you won't be able to put down.
