Description
This book of brilliant and viciously funny recollections from one of 20th-century literature's more notorious enfants terribles—written in 1980 but unpublished for two decades—tells the story of the various farces that developed around the literary prizes Thomas Bernhard received in his lifetime. Whether it was the Bremen Literature Prize, the Grillparzer Prize, or the Austrian State Prize, his participation in an acceptance ceremony—always less than gracious, it must be said—nearly always resulted in scandal. Here is a portrait of the writer as prizewinner: laconic, sardonic, and shaking his head with biting amusement at the world and at himself.
