Review:

"This study is lucidly written and displays a convincing balance between a close textual analysis and the integration of Jelinik's writing into its socio-political and theoretical context." --Forum for Modern Language Studies

"This is an important critical work that uses modern feminist approaches sensibly to reveal the texts of one of the most prominent contemporary writers in German as serious contributions to both literature and social awareness. As the first in a new series 'New Directions in European Writing' it sets a high standard." --MLR

..".providing a valuable introduction to J.'s biography, her approach to feminism, the broad development of contemporary Austrian literature, and the critical reaction to her work." --The Year's Work in Modern Language Studies

"This is the first monograph dedicated to Jelinek in English, and will doubtless prove an essential undergraduate introduction to this most outspoken and yet paradoxiclly elusive of writers ... This is the first in a new series of volumes to be published by Berg, which aims to introduce New Directions in European Writing to an undergraduate audience. It is a stimulating and exciting beginning." --Austrian Studies

From the Back Cover:

This book, the first substantive study of Jelinek's writing, explains how these modern myths are translated and re-worked in Jerlinek's fiction and how, by means of parody, satire, commentary and other linguistic and narrative and dramatic strategies, Jelinek suggests that the 'reality' of life is more accurately portrayed by her own very negative and exaggerated picture of brutality, ignorance and perversion.
