'The devil gave the woman a nudge: "Look at that belt full of money peeping out from under the butcher's shirt!"'

Written for a local German journal and published in 1811, these fabulous, funny, jewel-like miniature tales describe con men, tricksters, disasters, murders, rascals and lovers, and include Franz Kafka's favourite story.
