    There are things in the world that just suck and there is nothing you can do about them. I'm not talking about 'important' things like awful governments and assholes ruining the world or any of that kind of stuff, but rather things that should exist but never will. For example some of mine are that there will never be a completed third novel by David Foster Wallace (although I can keep my fingers crossed that someday the full version of Infinite Jest will be published, but I won't be holding my [...]

    This isn't really a review (so don't "like" it, folks), just wanted to write a few notes before I forget although these are short unfinished novels, they felt almost finished to me, in that the entire arc is included. There are some missing pieces in the middle, but you can pretty much guess it, especially if you read these two along with Malina, which forms a trilogy both in content and in theme. I feel like these two are not as deeply complicated as Malina, while still retaining the amazing wr [...]

    Frammenti di un romanzo mai terminato che doveva fare parte di una trilogia mai completata: “Cause di morte”. Una sorta di indagine sulle donne uccise se non nel corpo certamente nello spirito, vittime di moderni e sofisticati Barbablù che si aggirano tra corridoi e meandri del castello di un reale, normale, sadico (ma apparentemente distinto) assassino. Che scoprono la porta nascosta (quella destinata a celare il proprio cadavere) quando ormai è troppo tardi. La porta in fondo si rivela e [...]

    Der Fragment gebliebene Fall Franza gehört ebenso wie Malina zu Ingeborg Bachmanns Todesartenprojekt und in diesem Fall erzählt sie Geschichten von Verbrechen, die Mord sind im Inneren und Äußeren und schließlich an der Psyche hin zum Körper. Franza wird zum Fall gemacht von ihrem Ehemann und zerfällt an der Psychopathologisierung. Durch eine Abtreibung traumatisiert flüchtet sie, lässt sich von ihrem Bruder finden und reist mit ihm in die Wüste, wo sie sich immer mehr verliert in ihre [...]

    I had tried to read this book several times but would never persevere and thusly concluded that Bachmann just wasn't for me. Part of the initial determent was that the story is partly set in Egypt, and I find all things (ancient and beyond, as Martin is a geologist) Egypt are not in my field of interest. Immature reason to refuse great literature, I know, but that's how it sometimes goes. Anyway, I have read it for exam preparation this time around (lecture on Female Austrian Writers, University [...]

    I only read the Book of Franza, and not Requiem for Fanny Goldman. The fundamental premise of feminine victimhood was really hard to swallow - whenever I could put that aside, I found the book hypnotic and with fruitful things to say about perception, loneliness, squalor, etc. Peter Filkins is no longer on my shit list.

    bookcrossing/journal/8I have had this book in my posession for a very long time. All these years I did not get to read it and for some reason I do not find it very interesting anymore. It has been too long in one of the boxes with books I guess. So now I think it is time to release it through BookCrossing.

    Book of Franza made me cry.Really, it did.I have rather personal reasons for it to have made me cry, but really, it was the whole emphasis on the voiceless, and words, andIt's very hard to describe. It's a little sad that it's an unfinished book, but it's still extremely powerful.

    Between two and three stars, i only decided to rate it higher, not because of what i felt while reading it, but because of what i felt when i closed the book. Fast writing, sometimes incomprehensible, very personal and deep. Not for the many, a book worth the try.
