Reviews

A masterpiece!--Naja Marie Aidt
The most intelligent and important woman writer our land has produced this century.--Thomas Bernhard
A Viennese woman cooks dinner for her lover, waits by the telephone, delays embarking on a trip or writing the book she's meant to write. And in that null-time, the abyss of twentieth-century trauma yawns wide open and engulfs her.--Tom McCarthy
Enigmatic, yet piercing: equal to the best of Virginia Woolf and Samuel Beckett.
An existential portrait, a work of desperate obsession, a proto-feminist classic, and one of the most jagged renderings of female consciousness European literature has produced.--Dustin Illingworth"Detonating the Container of Consciousness" (06/18/2019)
Bachmann's vision is so original that the effect is like having a new letter of the alphabet.-- (06/29/2029)
A feminist classic.-- (07/09/2019)
Bachmann's only novel--set in Vienna and first published in 1971--takes on the vexed struggle between the sexes in a decaying city. Dense, compelling, often weirdly funny, a dark fairy tale told as a murder mystery. Rewarding and highly recommended.
Exhilarating and claustrophobic--Will Harrison
