Meet The Echt-Bohemian Of Fin-De-Siècle Vienna
Peter Altenburg (né
Richard Engländer) "walked out of courses in law, botany, and medicine before, in his thirties, giving himself over to a life of thorough and eccentric bohemianism. He is reputed to have spent most of his adult waking hours in coffeehouses, and the sleeping ones in a hotel that was little more than a brothel."
