Rare! 1961, Max Frisch, Andorra, First Edition


Max Rudolf Frisch (1911 – 1991) was a Swiss writer and architect. With plays such as Biedermann and the Arsonists or Andorra as well as his three major novels Stiller, Homo Faber and My Name is Gantenbein, Frisch reached a wide audience and found his way into the school canon. He also published radio plays, stories and smaller prose texts as well as two literary diaries covering the periods 1946 to 1949 and 1966 to 1971.

About the book: The original text came from a prose sketch Frisch had written in his diary titled Der andorranische Jude (The Andorran Jew). The Andorra in Frisch’s play is fictional and not intended to be a representation of the real Andorra located between France and Spain. Frisch has stated that the title Andorra had only been intended as a working title but later liked using the term “Andorrans” so much he kept it.
