Thomas Bernhard was one of the most original writers of the twentieth century His formal innovation ranks with Beckett and Kafka his outrageously cantankerous voice recalls Dostoevsky but his gift for lacerating lyrical provocative prose is incomparably his own br br One of Bernhard s most acclaimed novels i The Loser i centers on a fictional relationship between piano virtuoso Glenn Gould and two of his fellow students who feel compelled to renounce their musical ambitions in the face of Gould s incomparable genius One commits suicide while the other the obsessive witty and self mocking narrator has retreated into obscurity Written as a monologue in one remarkable unbroken paragraph i The Loser i is a brilliant meditation on success failure genius and fame, Instead of the book he s meant to write Rudolph a Viennese musicologist produces this tale of procrastination failure and despair a dark and grotesquely funny story of small woes writ large and profound horrors detailed and rehearsed to the point of distraction br br Certain books few assert literary importance instantly profoundly This new novel by the internationally praised but not widely known Austrian writer is one of those a book of mysterious dark beauty It is overwhelming one wants to read it again immediately to re experience its intricate innovations not to let go of this masterful work John Rechy i Los Angeles Times i br br Rudolph is not obstructed by some malfunctions in part of his being his being itself is a knot And as Bernhard s narrative proceeds we begin to register the dimensions of his crisis its self consuming circularity 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 i The New Republic i, This controversial portrayal of Viennese artistic circles begins as the writer narrator arrives at an artistic dinner given by a composer and his society wife a couple that the writer once admired and has come to loathe The guest of honor an actor from the Burgtheater is late As the other guests wait impatiently they are seen through the critical eye of the narrator who begins a silent but frenzied sometimes maniacal and often ambivalent tirade against these former friends most of whom were brought together by the woman whom they had buried that day Reflections on Joana s life and suicide are mixed with these denunciations until the famous actor arrives bringing a culmination to the evening for which the narrator had not even thought to hope br br Mr Bernhard s portrait of a society in dissolution has a Scandinavian darkness reminiscent of Ibsen and Strindberg but it is filtered through a minimalist prose i Woodcutters i offers an unusually intense engrossing literary experience Mark Anderson i New York Times Book Review i br br Musical dramatic and set in Vienna i Woodcutters i resembles a Strauss operetta with a libretto by Beckett Joseph Costes i Chicago Tribune i br br Thomas Bernhard the great pessimist rhapsodist of German literature never compromises never makes peace with life Only in the pure fierce isolation of his art can he get justice Michael Feingold i Village Voice i br br In typical Bernhardian fashion the narrator is moved by hatred i and i affection for a society that he believes destroys the very artistic genius it purports to glorify A superb translation i Library Journal i, The Austrian playwright novelist and poet Thomas Bernhard is acknowledged as among the major writers of our times At once pessimistic and exhilarating Bernhard s work depicts the corruption of the modern world the dynamics of totalitarianism and the interplay of reality and appearance br br In this stunning translation of i The Voice Imitator i Bernhard gives us one of his most darkly comic works A series of parable like anecdotes some drawn from newspaper reports some from conversation some from hearsay this satire is both subtle and acerbic What initially appear to be quaint little stories inevitably indict the sterility and callousness of modern life not just in urban centers but everywhere Bernhard presents an ordinary world careening into absurdity and disaster Politicians professionals tourists civil servants the usual victims of Bernhard s inspired misanthropy succumb one after another to madness mishap or suicide The shortest piece titled Mail illustrates the anonymity and alienation that have become standard in contemporary society For years after our mother s death the Post Office still delivered letters that were addressed to her The Post Office had taken no notice of her death br br In his disarming sometimes hilarious style Bernhard delivers a lethal punch with every anecdote George Steiner has connected Bernhard to the great constellation of Kafka Musil and Broch and John Updike has compared him to Grass Handke and Weiss i The Voice Imitator i reminds us that Thomas Bernhard remains the most caustic satirist of our age
