Thomas Bernhard, The Lime Works, first US edition

This post now resides on my other site 50 Watts:


  1. ooohh, it's gorgeous.
    I think quite a lot of Thomas B is out of print in English. Even quite famous novels. in USA and UK they've only ever done quite small print runs - I remember when I first got into him I tried to buy some on Amazon and quite a few had to be second-hand. Like Wittgenstein's Nephew, even!

  2. this makes me want to cover my 90's copy in brownbag paper for shame... man that is cool!!!!!!!

  3. Looks like this is coming back into print in March, presumably from Vintage which just put out WN.
