Most memorable - and most chilling - is the portrait of the authors father, a maddened shopkeeper who imports rare birds eggs to hatch in his attic, who believes tailors dummies should be treated like people, and whose obsessive fear of cockroaches causes him to resemble one.Sanatorium Under the Sign of the Hourglass is the second and final work of Bruno Schulz, the acclaimed Polish writer killed by the Nazis during World War II. In the words of Isaac Bashevis Singer, What he did in his short life was enough to make him one of the most remarkable writers who ever lived. Weaving myth, fantasy, and reality, Sanatorium Under the Sign of the Hourglass, is, to quote Schulz, an attempt at eliciting the history of a certain family...by a search for the mythical sense, the essential core of that history.
