Product Description

che novel, one of Austrian playwright & novelist Thomas Bernhard's earliest fictions, is a surreal study of the nature ofhumanity. One morning a doctor & his son set out on daily rounds through the grim, mountainous Austrian countryside. They observe the colorful characters they encounter - from an innkeeper whose wife has been murdered to a crippled musical prodigy kept in a cage - coping with physical misery, sickness, & the brutality of the austere landscape. The parade of human grotesques culminates in a hundred-page monologue by an eccentric, paranoid prince rendered in a verbal torrent. 208p.
