My Prizes

by Thomas Bernhard

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.

‘Thank goodness for Thomas Bernhard, the most truthful, the funniest, and the most musical of writers since Marcel Proust.’
Gabriel Josipovici
'The English translations of his work and their growing readership, will surely solidify Bernhard’s legacy as one of the most important authors of the 20th century.’
Jessica Ferri
