Read full description of the books Auslöschung: Ein Zerfall:Thomas Bernhard is one of the greatest twentieth-century writers in the German language. Extinction, his last novel, takes the form of the autobiographical testimony of Franz-Josef Murau. The intellectual black sheep of a powerful Austrian land-owning family, Murau lives in Rome in self-exile. Obsessed and angry with his identity as an Austrian, he resolves never to return to the family estate of Wolfsegg. But when news comes of his parents' deaths, he finds himself master of Wolfsegg and must decide its fate.
Written in Bernhard's seamless style, Extinction is the ultimate proof of his extraordinary literary genius.
Read information about the authorThomas Bernhard was an Austrian author, who ranges among the most distinguished German speaking writers of the second half of the 20th century.
Although internationally he's most acclaimed because of his novels, he was also a prolific playwright. His characters were oftenly working in a lifetime and never-ending major work while they deal with themes such as suicide, madness and obsession and, as Bernhard did, they use to have a love-hate relation with Austria. His prose was tumultuous but sober at the same time, philosophic in the background, with a musical cadency and plenty of black humor.
He started publishing in the year 1963, with the title "Frost". His last published work, appeared in the year 1986, was "Extinction". Some of his most well known works include "The loser" (where he ficitionalizes about Glenn Gould), "Correction" and "Woodcutters".
