    • This autobiographical , five - part novel ( An Indication of the Cause , The Cellar , A breath , Cold , The child) is a meticulous reconstruction of the years of adolescence . This is uncompromising attack on the destructive forces : school , family , church , society . It is accusing assessment of blind in its conformism nation , its disgraceful deeds , its reluctant memory , the infinite human inertia . This is undisguised manifestation of contempt and hatred . It is planned and with surgical [...]


    • Ein Selbstbildungsroman Bernhard reflects on his formative years A survivor's tale and an artistic manifesto.Bernhard's negativism is deeply life-affirmingSince my early youth, I have been reading and rereading Thomas Bernhard. Actually, reading Bernhard involves rereading Bernhard because of Bernhard's repetitive verbal music, repetitive not in a Philip Glass sense but in a Bach sense, a Beethoven sense


    • Gathering Evidence is a collection of five short books that Thomas Bernhard wrote chronicling the first twenty or so years of his life. I don't know if there is a tradition in German speaking countries that memoirs need to be written in an egomaniacal manner, but this one falls into the same company of such greats as Klaus Kinski and Werner Herzog. Just compare the opening scene of a young Thomas Bernhard jumping onto a bicycle and, viola, knowing instinctively how to ride it without ever having [...]


    • Released a long exhalation and said "Jesus" when I finished this. Not for the faint o' heart. It's sort of like that movie Precious except this is the Austrian, high-literary, grammar-school-under-Nazism/Allied-air-raids/tuberculosis sanatorium (after all, the author's initials are "T.B.") version of surviving a worst-case scenario/hell. The language isn't as exagerratedly composed re: repetitions and theme/variations on every page as in his fiction, but the same special Bernhardian unrelenting [...]


    • Este libro me hizo sufrir mucho. Bueno, esa no es la manera de empezar a hablar de el. Pero tengo que mencionarlo antes de comentar lo maravilloso que me parece. No es fácil, el mundo que hay en estos relatos. En El Origen, habla sobre la educación, el internado al que le toca ir. El Tío Franz, que en realidad era el director del internado nazi en el que estaba, que después de la guerra es convertido a un internado ultra católico. Habla sobre su abuelo, sobre su madre, su familia, habla sob [...]


    • At work I keep a piece of paper at my desk that reads in capital letters, "THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION." Every now and then someones stops by, notices it, and asks what it means. I say: It's from Thomas Bernhard's memoirs. They ask: But what does it mean? I get somewhat irritated and say again, somewhat forcefully: It's from Thomas Bernhard's memoirs. They trudge away and, my guess, never read Thomas Bernhard's memoirs. But they should. Why? Because they should. What does "THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION" mea [...]


    • Al igual que Montaigne, Thomas Bernhard (1931-1988) toma su persona como objeto de estudio. El origen es la primera novela de lo que sería su pentalogía autobiográfica, que la editorial Anagrama recoge en un único volumen.Su relato no esconde nada y muestra a las claras la nefasta influencia que el nacionalsocialismo y el catolicismo ejercieron sobre su persona cuando éste tenía trece años y Alemania había perdido la Segunda Guerra Mundial y los aliados arrasaban con sus bombardeos ciuda [...]


    • Once again, a perfect 4.5 star book - although it seems a little ridiculous to quibble about Bernhard's prose, since the man is obviously a master and can do what he likes, I feel very strongly that there were peaks and valleys here. The black aria - there's no other phrase I can think of that fits - which opens the section about Salzburg is as good as anything I've ever read, and might be the most Bernhard of Bernhard riffs, which is really saying something. All of the pseudo-musical (everyone' [...]


    • Grandioso e imprescindible. Una lección de vida sustanciosa. Durante la lectura me he visto inspirado irremediablemente por la sabiduría de este moderno Montaigne.


    • Tras leer todos sus relatos autobiográficos, tras saber de todas las desgracias que le tocó padecer en sus primeros 20 años de vida, que son los aquí relatados, tras comunicarnos en ellos una y otra vez todo su desprecio por la vida, no mayor que su autodesprecio, uno no puede sino preguntarse por qué no acabó matándose, estando como está la idea del suicidio sobrevolando continuamente toda la narración. Y aunque siempre podemos sospechar que buena parte de lo aquí narrado pueda ser fi [...]



    • This is my fifth and just possibly my last book by Bernhard. He is stupendous, but the problem he raises for me is: When is it time to stop reading him? I haven't got a clear idea about that, but I think it might hinge on whether or not you laugh when you read him. When he piles impossible disaster on implausible condemnation, when each sentence pronounces a verdict more tar-black, more hopeless, more sweeping, more disconsolately angry than the last, do you laugh? I do. I do not think he intend [...]


    • Najtrafniejszą charakterystyką idei i klaustrofobicznego klimatu tej ksiażki jest wg mnie zaczerpnięty z niej cytat: "Świat jest więzieniem z niewielką swobodą ruchów". To opowieść o traumie młodości i dzieciństwa, która przez porażającą szczerość i bezkompromosowość autora w ocenie rzeczywistości kaleczy także czytelnika. To mowa oskarżycielska przeciwko dorosłym, którzy niszczą młodego człowieka i wpędzają w bezdenną samotność oraz rozpacz w każdej sferze lu [...]


    • Powerful, difficult stuff. Not the place to start w Bernhard, but a simply fascinating account of how he came to be who he was when his literary career finally began.What a genius.

    • A magnificent book by a really original, great writer. So many writers get undeservedly high reputations for originality or genius, but Bernhard is the real thing. His books are eccentric in construction: long sentences, no paragraphs, the same words repeated, but he can ignore the rules because he is a great writer.He is also unflinchingly honest. He looks with x ray vision at the world around him and he reports the truth and does so fearlessly.I love the title of this autobiography because I t [...]


    • A compelling, shameful childhood as a illegitimate child; a quite unsuccessful school life; an abandonment and a fresh start with a cellarshop in the slums of Salzburg. Not enough. A dreadful disease; lots of deaths; loneliness, a shunned life at all.Bernhard is a difficult person on every places, and this is highly understandable, when one thinks all the events in his life. Depressing, agonizing, challenging, but completely true. Truth.


    • sanatoriums and grammar school sound like crappy places. also probably has the funniest description of ppl with tuberculosis walking around and spitting phglemgh into phlegm jars + waiting to die i've ever read. good jod mr. b.





    • I have never read Bernhard's novels, so this was a hard one to start with - especially because he has NO paragraph breaks. (Are his novels the same?) I appreciated his bleak humor and his portrayal of his grandfather in the first book, and his revulsion of small-town German and Austrian culture is very funny. You should know that Bernhard's style is very unique. He repeats himself, often several times on the same page; he holds grudges, he rants. But the style is for me a plus and feels like a d [...]


    • Dense and detailed account of childhood. No paragraphs or chapters - must have seemed a good idea at the time.



    • Ottima autobiografia e calzante la considerazione sulla verità che non esiste se non nel punto di vista di chi la "vede". La Seconda Guerra Mondiale vista con gli occhi di un bambino, il collegio cattolico che è pari a quello nazista (l'unico cambaimento è l'aver messo il crocifisso al posto del ritratto di Hitler) e il bellissimo rapporto col nonno che lo aiuta ad elevarsi dalla mediocrità (anche se nella famiglia mostra di avere un carattere un po' burbero), ma anche questo servirà a form [...]


    • Apesar de não ser uma autobiografia no sentido comummente usado, não deixa de ser um registo autobiográfico. Faz lembrar o "Pão com fiambre" de Bukowski, ou a "A Morte do Pai" de Karl Ove Knausgard. Muito bom.


    • لا يوجد غير قلة قليلة جدا (لاحظ التشديد) أنا مستعد لقراءة سيرهم الذاتية المزعجة غالبا، ومن هؤلاء برنهارد. لا يمكن تفويت كمية الهراءات والخرابيط والنعوت والتشكي والسب والاستنقاص واللامبالاة العظيمة التي سيكتبها هذا العبقري الوقح.
