"One of the most powerful autobiographies of the 20th century. . . . Overwhelming in its impact."
--"Los Angeles Times
Bernhard’s difficult yet mesmerizing prose has an exquisite and utterly unique rhythm. His style is so impressive it could almost stand on its own, but at its best it also serves as a perfect expression of his devastatingly incisive worldview. Bernhard’s most spectacular characteristic, however, is his incredible ability to explore the darkest depths of the human condition and emerge not only accepting them but celebrating them as well. Don’t forget your sense of irony. Not for the faint of heart.
