Book Description

Aug. 24 2010 Austrian Literature Series

Aloisia Schmidt is an ordinary secretary with a burning question: am I a redundant human being? She's neither pretty nor ugly (though she wishes she were hideous: at least that would be something), has no imagination, and is forced to live vicariously through "borrowed" fantasy -- fantasy, that is, borrowed from books, plays, even other people's lives. She loves to hate herself, and loves for other people to hate her too. In one final, guilt-ridden, masturbatory, self-obsessed confession, Aloisia indulges her masochistic tendencies to the fullest, putting her entire life on trial, and trying, through telling her story (a story, she assures us, that's "so laughably mundane" it's really no story at all), to transform an ordinary life into something extraordinary.

Product Description

Review

Finally, the time has come for Mela Hartwig s rediscovery! The contradictions, the constant fluctuation between passion and dispassionate observation, make this office romance written in the form of a heated confession outrageously modern and thrilling.
