My Prizes

Prefaced by Frances Wilson, My Prizes is a brilliantly mordant memoir of the background and circumstances of nine literary prizes awarded to Austrian novelist and enfant terrible, Thomas Bernhard, between 1963 and 1980, followed by some of the speeches he delivered on those occasions. The result is a self-portrait of the artist as prizewinner and prize farceur: sardonic, biting the-hand, relishing both the world and himself with bitter amusement.
