THE NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOKS: Musil's "INTIMATE TIES" [Teen] Nymphet Bestiality

I learned about Robert Musil's Intimate Ties: Two Novellas [German: Vereinigungen] (translated from German by Peter Wortsman) from the The New York Review of Books (MAR 26, 2020) where Michael Hofmann described "The Temptation of Silent Veronica", the second novella, this way:

Here's an excerpt that describes how Veronica was aroused and became "hot" by the sight of the dog's penis:

And when she noticed that her little pointed breasts rose and sank in rhythm [...] the dog now stood up straight and stared at her. And then all at once she noticed that something pointed, red, woefully twisted had silently poked its way out of his meerschaum yellow fleece, and at that very moment she now wanted to get up she felt the tepid touch of a tongue against her face. And feeling stunned, unable to was as she herself were also an animal, and despite the terrible fear that gripped her, something cringed hot inside birds squawking and feathers fluttering in the hedgerow, till all falls silent and soft like a flurry of floating feathers...

Veronica reminded me of Dawn and Nina who shared the following in the bestseller Nancy Friday's My Secret Garden: Women’s Sexual Fantasies:

When Dawn was 15, she enjoyed sauntering around her house in the "[...] summer when her parents were out [...]" and having breakfast in the nude. On one such morning, she noticed that her dog, "[...] had this huge hard-on [...]" while he tried to climb upon her. And since that day she said that she has fantasized about that scene "[...] a thousand different ways, complete with the dog's prick inside me, and my family walking in on the scene [...]"

Nina "[...] discovered the delights of masturbation, at the age of seven [...]" She used to imagine that her girlfriend was rubbing between her legs or that her girlfriend's dog was licking her vagina.

Note: If you plan on reading Musil's Intimate Ties: Two Novellas, I must point out that you may find that it's very difficult to read. 
Wortsman shared in the afterword that Musil wrote in his journal, "I almost drove myself out of my mind [writing Intimate Ties: Two Novellas]." Wortsman wrote that the book is "[...] far outside the excepted norms of European art, he [Musil] thought of it rather as a verbal collage, a kind of medieval illuminated manuscript."
