The Autobiography of Albert Einstein [Paperback]

Gerhard Roth , Malcolm Green
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Available from these sellers.



Book Description

March 1993
Gerhard Roth’s first "novel," originally published in 1972, is a triumphant refutation of the death of modernism: a lucid, morbid and impossible account of what cannot be said, a deranged existence pieced together, an individual at total odds not only with the world and its structures, but with the chemical and biological basis of his own thought.

About the Author

Gerhard Roth, born in 1942 in Graz, Austria, is perhaps the most important writer to emerge from that "hot-bed of geniuses," the Forum Stadtpark, which has radically influenced German letters in the last two decades. His broad range of works, from experimental novels to plays and a children’s book, has earned him a number of major prizes, and several of his books have been filmed. An uncomfortable writer whose work revolves around extreme mental states and behaviour.

either the other reviewer of this book is a practical joker, or there is a different book called the autibiography of albert einstein that was written by gerhard roth and translated by malcolm green.or perhaps there is indeed a third possibility. one that is much more sinister. this book has nothing to do with einstein. if you want to read his autobiography look elsewhere. this book is a post-modern experimental obsessive-compulsive sort of investigation into the chemicals which spurt around the body of einstein and create as a biproduct his subconcious. and maybe its not even that. if you like your literature to be bizarre and have nothing to do with albert einstein, go ahead and read this. i really like it. but i also like to drink cough syrup, so...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Book Dec 10 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is possibly the best book ever written. Its a wonderfully crafted book by Einstein that portrays the truths of ambition, love, and skill that go against modern views of success and status. A must read for anyone interested in science, knowledge, and life.

1.0 out of 5 stars A wierd book with a misleading title Feb. 19 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book has nothing to do with Albert Einstein, the scientist, apparently. I can't imagine why the author chose this title for his collection of strange and disjointed thoughts. I am careful about what I feed my mind and will not read anymore of this book. It is the most diappointing book I have ever tried to read.
