The Man Without Qualities by Robert Musil

 The Man without Qualities (1930-42) is a novel in three books by the Austrian novelist and essayist Robert Musil. The main issue of this "story of ideas", which takes place in the time of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy's last days, is the need to preserve order in a shaken world (never considering the fact that World War I was to begin in a couple of months).
