From Berlin Stories, edited by Philip Hensher
"Our previous governess was fat as a frog. She always seemed to be about to burst. She was English. She's still English today, of course, but the moment she took liberties, she was no longer our concern."
From The Little Berliner, by Robert Walser, translated by Harriet Watts
