Lists with This Book. The city had long since disappeared beneath his feet. If I saw it in a dream that didn’t mean I could have stopped it from happening.

I actually have the older Penguin Classics, not the new Dedalusbut nonetheless a horror pwrte intensity comes through that’s hard to put out of mind. Published July 27th by Dedalus first published This is what I liked about The Other Side: Was that the source of Kubin’s imagination? With a snort, he inflated his lungs, filling first the right and then the left side of his chest, and then with his fingers on the eighteen nipples played the most beautiful harmonica pieces.

The Other Side

It was probably from when I made dead lizards dance as a four year old my biographer says so. This won’t be for everyone but if you like weird fiction That’s what the spokesperson I don’t know if I really liked this or not.


There are a lot of interesting episodes and touches in this book, but it doesn’t come together like it could have. Nov 20, Olivia rated it really liked it. I don’t understand why it is not more widely known.

LA Otra Parte

I have wanted this book for so long but because it is out of print had difficult tracking it down. Something about this collective unconscious in a burned to the ground village made me feel so tired. It was reprinted a number of times since it was written around I think with more and more of his autobiography added – obviously as he wrote it.

Shit, if they want shitty neighbors I can give them shitty neighbors. A fine pattern of cracks appeared in the precious vases and porcelains.

Da un barlume di comprensione nacque una forza, un’aspirazione Now he grew boundlessly, he dug up a volcano from which kubn hung, snail-shaped and twisted, a granite intestine torn from the entrails of the earth. What is the demi-God of the Dream Realm, what does the rust really refer to, what does the giant penis mean?

The Other Side by Alfred Kubin

The splendid paintings developed black spots, which rapidly spread over the entire surface. View all 8 comments. The Dream Land is a paper cut kind of festering. The shape of the turd is like one of those clouds that looks like a bunny rabbit if you look at it the right way. Mi piacciono gli incubi che Kubin disegnava, intendo. Which is nothing but the exterior of the subject. Some passages of cosmic destruction reminded me of “The House on the Borderland” where the very universe quakes, crumbles and is destroyed.


I think it would have been better at a somewhat shorter length; the hideous events palled by repetition. Blah blah blah Kubin was a pessimist and tortured small animals in his youth I thought that was a al killer sign kubln what do I know?

The Other Side is a gloomily satirical novel showing some fine rudiments of absurdism and it is a kind of a mystical dystopia. Moving there at his behest made no kind of gut sense to me.

I would recommend it to anyone with a slightly morbid imagination or an interest in him as an artist. I adore Kubin as an artist and no less as a writer. Okay, maybe I liked the drawings better because that was a total lie. Recommended to Mariel by: The bitchy nurse says some shit now about how that was the point, Europe after WWI, blah blah blah.
