Novamente Thomas Bernhard em mãos

Bernhard, Thomas Gargoyles. Translated by Richard Winston and Clara Winston. 214 p. 1970 Series: (PF) Phoenix Fiction Series, The University of Chicago Press.

A primeira obra de Thomas Bernhard...

"The feeling grows that Thomas Bernhard is now the most original, concentrated novelist writing in German. His connections . . . with the great constellation of Kafka, Musil, and Broch become ever clearer."--George Steiner, Times Literary Supplement

FROM THE PUBLISHER:
"Early one morning a doctor sets out with his son on his daily rounds through the forbidding moutainouse countryside. Their visits, a succession of grotesque portraits- a diabetic industrialist living in incestuous isolation with his half-sister; three brothers, occupying a mill set in a deep gorge, who have just strangled a bevy of exotic birds; a crippled musical prodigy whose sister locks him in a cage- lead them to a castle and a paranoid prince, whose 'almost uninterrupted monologue for a hundred pages is a virtuoso verbal performance...an extraordinary, somber first novel."

Farto de cantar as horas, as medias e os cuartos, no bosque unicamente cantaba unha vez ao ano: a primavera en punto." Carlos López, Minimaladas (Premio Merlín 2007)
