There is some allegorical connection between the sexual abuse and capitalism, Elfriede Jelinek’s lame marxist remarks could have been toned down a bit though!

Quite a strange but brilliantly written mixture. Jelinek es una mujer enojada. There jelknek no discussion topics on this book yet. You might, at most, smirk at the thought of castrating someone. Oct 07, Olethros rated it liked it.

This is becoming tiresome, even if Jelinek’s insights into “contemporary” this was written in ’89 existence do bear consideration. Herman is the manager director jeelinek a paper mill in Austrian countryside, who exploits the nature and local people.

Not a pleasant b Acidic novel detailing the relationship within one well-to-do Austrian family – father, mother and young son. The narrator frankly tells us that this woman has to get attached to an asshole like Michael, of all people… He grabs roughly inside the front of her coat and dress, and, laughing, tugs and twists her nipples… Deswo book is strikingly more about regrets over life choices rather than the popular blurbed-war between the sexes.

This is a magnificent piece of art, but there are very few people I would recommend read this book, though it was recommended to me by my Uncle. The relationships are all antagonistic and power-based.
