Meine Preise update

Suhrkamp has more thrilling information (in German) on its new Bernhard prose work (his own term for his books) due next month. It is a complete work in nine chapters and an appendix.
"According to Thomas Bernhard, the art of exaggeration can also take the form of understatement. In the sense of such understatement, the publication of My Prizes is a sensation."
And talking of Bernhard, don't miss The Chagall Position's excellent post on Bernhard's speech attribution tags. I wonder if Lionel Shriver would approve.
