Clockwork or All Wound Up
A chilling tale of mechanical beings which has human warmth at its heart. When Fritz begins his story in the tavern on the night when Karl finishes his clockmaker’s apprenticeship, the boundaries between fiction and reality begin to blur. An interesting feature of this novel is the author’s asides to the reader at a number of points. The black and white illustrations complement the text well.
