Review

Call it the Eternal Return of fiction, and Nietzsche might not have disagreed. -- New York Press

Gauger is an uncompromising author willing to raise some big questions no one has asked in a long time. -- Andrew Ervin

Gauger writes an off-centre, twisting narrative, sparkled with elaborate prose ... delicious descriptives ... Unsettling. -- The Peak, Vancouver

The results, at their best, are engaging, funny and thought-provoking ... Gauger delights in subverting expectations. -- The Globe and Mail

[S]everal of the stories are really quite good (and unforgettable for all the right reasons). -- Tim Davis, NewPages.com

Product Description

Hymns to Millionaires is Canadian native Soren A. Gauger's first collection of stories. Taking as his raw materials the treatment of the fantastic found in Borges and Kis, the misanthropic musings of Gombrowicz and Bernhard, and a literary understanding of philosophy, Gauger's stories are formally challenging yet very funny. They often deal with the chaotic fragmentation of the individual, who is mindful of both society and literature, while exploring the blank spaces implicit somewhere behind the narrative.


"[The] tales are told by a maniacally arrested, manipulated, wrested-from-disaster and parodied present, which is merely the meeting-point of any — if not all — possible pasts and futures. Call it the Eternal Return of fiction, and Nietzsche might not have disagreed. While this disjointed narrative approach might sound high and rarified, precious and post, it works and works well."
— New York Press

"Soren A. Gauger, a Canadian living in Poland, offers a debut of 11 fantastical stories in this work from a Prague publisher, with echoes of Kafka, Borges and Danilo Kis. The results, at their best, are engaging, funny and thought-provoking ... Gauger delights in subverting expectations."
— The Globe & Mail (Toronto)

"Soren Alberto Gauger writes an off-centre, twisting narrative, sparkled with elaborate prose ... delicious descriptives, such as "chiaroscuro macabre" and "whirlpools of Slavic syllables." ... Unsettling."
— The Peak (Vancouver)

"Hymns to Millionaires is a debut collection by a young Canadian author living in Poland. His name is Soren A. Gauger, and you'll want to remember it. What a book. [...] Gauger is an uncompromising author willing to raise some big questions no one has asked in a long time."
— Andrew Ervin, The New York Journal News
