About the Author

Thomas Bernhard was born in Holland in 1931 and grew up in Austria. He studied music at the Akademie Mozarteum in Salzburg. In 1957 he began a second career, as a playwright, poet, and novelist. The winner of the three most distinguished and coveted literary prizes awarded in Germany, he has become one of the most widely translated and admired writers of his generation. He published nine novels, an autobiography, one volume of poetry, four collections of short stories, and six volumes of plays. Thomas Bernhard died in Austria in 1989.

Reviews

"Certain books--few--assert literary importance instantly, profoundly. This is one of those--a book of mysterious dark beauty."
--Los Angeles Times

"A masterpiece. . . . [Bernhard's] world is so powerfully imagined that it can seem to surround you like little else in literature."
--The New Yorker

"Something of a tour-de-force."
--The Washington Post

"Where rage of this intensity is directed outward, we often find the sociopath, where inward, the suicide. Where it breaks out laterally, onto the page, we sometimes find a most unsettling artistic vision."
--Sven Birkerts, The New Republic
