Product Description

Review

"Furious, obsessive, scathing, absolutely hilarious and oddly beautiful."--Claire Messud, author of "The Emperor's Children", on "Salon""Bernhard's fiction is full of energy; his restless imagination cannot leave a fact or idea alone. . . . Only someone with such a brilliant, tricky, inexhaustible mind could get away with "Wittgenstein's Nephew"."--"The New York Times""In its obsessive, elegant rhythms and narrative eloquence, ["Wittgenstein's Nephew"] resembles a tragic aria by Richard Strauss. . . . A memento mori that approaches genius." --"Wall Street Journal""Oddly moving and funny. . . . A meditative fugue for mad, brilliant voices on the themes of death, death-in-life and the artist's and thinker's role in society."--"Chicago Tribune""Bernhard is a writer of great originality and fascination."--"The New York Review of Books""In the annals of literature, Thomas Bernhard will stand as Austria's postwar genius."--"The Washington Times""Thomas Bernhard is one of the masters of contemporary European fiction. . . . After Kafka and Canetti's, his sensibility is one of the most acute, the most capable of exemplary images and gestures, in modern literature."--George Steiner"It is high time that we keep Bernhard firmly in our mind, as European readers have been doing for many years now."--"Christian Science Monitor"

About the Author

Thomas Bernhard (1931-1989) has been hailed by Gabriel Josipovici as 'Austria's finest postwar writer' and by George Steiner as 'one of the masters of contemporary European fiction.' Faber Finds is proud to reissue a selection of four of Bernhard's finest novels: Concrete, The Loser, Extinction and Wittgenstein's Nephew.
