Reissued with stunning artwork by Leanne Shapton and a new afterword by Anne Enright, Woodcutters is a blistering European classic.

An unnamed writer arrives at an 'artistic dinner' hosted by a composer and his society wife: a couple he once admired, but has now come to detest. They have been brought together by their friend Joana's suicide, but the guest of honour, a famous actor from the Burgtheatre, is late. As the guests await his arrival, little do they know that they are being subjected to the narrator's merciless scrutiny from his wing-backed throne, the targets of a tirade of epic, frenzied proportions. When the star actor finally arrives, he ushers in an explosive end to the evening that is impossible to see coming.

Originally banned in Thomas Bernhard's homeland, Woodcutters brutally exposes the hollow pretentiousness of the Austrian bourgeoisie in an unforgettable firework display of humour and horror.

I absolutely love Bernhard: he is one of the darkest and funniest writers ... A must read for everybody. , Karl Ove Knausgaard

Penetrating and satirical ... Superbly distinctive and provocative., New York Times

The most significant literary achievement since World War II . The master. , New York Times

Bernhard induces the kind of intoxication whereby it becomes almost difficult to read anyone else ... A supremely funny writer., Geoff Dyer
