Translated through William Weaver

The testomony of a neurosis unleashed within the protagonist after the loss of life of his father within the kind of a unfastened and uninterrupted stream of techniques and pictures, as produced in a psychoanalysis. This novel, a bit extra earnest than Confessions of Zeno, gained the Premio Viareggio and Campiello Prize.

Funny is unquestionably within the eye of the beholder, or reader consequently - Berto is humorous the best way Thomas Bernhard is humorous. when you laughed out loud whereas analyzing The Lime Works, then you definitely may perhaps provide INCUBUS a attempt. Berto additionally stocks an analogous kind of prose sort (I may name it a prose attack) as Bernhard. Sentences run on for pages, there's no often written discussion, and there's just one or paragraph breaks in step with bankruptcy. This makes for an extremely dense 388 pages. nonetheless, it was once essentially the most wonderful issues I've learn lately, and that i imagine it's a disgrace it's fallen thus far into obscurity.
