Product Details


“Superbly distinctive and provocative. . . . An unusually intense, engrossing literary experience.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Musical, dramatic and set in Vienna, Woodcutters resembles a Strauss operetta with a libretto by Beckett. . . . Bernhard is easily the most original and important writer in German since Gunter Grass.”
Chicago Tribune

“Bernhard’s narrators are prodigious haters, and yet we love them; they are too brilliant for it to be otherwise.”
“No other book by Bernhard could possibly constitute a better introduction to his work as a whole. Apart from perfectly illustrating his shrewdness, disgruntlement and acute awareness, Woodcutters is very funny.”
The Washington Post
