Reviews

"A raw literary meditation on loss." --Kirkus

Praise for Friederike Mayröcker

"With breathless abandon, [Mayröcker] has continually expanded her oeuvre and exploded notions of genre and convention, while always getting to the heart of this earthly living."
--BOMB magazine

"Friederike Mayröcker, among the world's greatest living writers, reinterprets literary vocation as total theater."
--Wayne Koestenbaum

"Through the powerful immediacy of her at times heart-wrenching language, Mayröcker proves that grief does not have to be private and can acquire a dignity that triumphs over any worry about decency."
--Heide Kunzelmann, TLS
