Thomas Bernhard in Person

Well in the run up to Thomas Bernhard week I decide to watch a couple of things on You tube .I always love to place and see the writer as a person .So with my basic schoolboy German I watch these .First is a documentary with Bernhard talking about why he writes .

The next piece was a staging of Letter Bernhard had written over the years to his German Publisher Siegfried Unseld .I beleive these are in process of being translated into in english .

The German paper Die Zeit had this to say about this book

    I have not read Thomas Bernhard but I really want to. He sounds like someone whose work I would enjoy. I understand that he is a bit controversial at least in Austria. I look forward to your upcoming commentary Stu.
