Concrete by Thomas Bernhard( Book )
106 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in 12 languages and held by 1,300 libraries worldwide
"Instead of the book he's meant to write, Rudolph, a Viennese musicologist, produces this dark and grotesquely funny account of small woes writ large, of profound horrors detailed and rehearsed to the point of distraction. We learn of Rudolph's sister, whose help he invites, then reviles as malevolent meddling; his "really marvelous" house, which he hates; the suspicious illness he carefully nurses; his ten-year-long attempt to write the perfect opening sentence; and, finally, his escape to the island of Majorca, which turns out to be the site of someone else's very real horror story."--P. [4] of cover
Frost by Thomas Bernhard( Book )
114 editions published between 1963 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,211 libraries worldwide
Frost follows an unnamed young Austrian who accepts an unusual assignment. Rather than continue with his medical studies, he travels to a bleak mining town in the back of beyond, in order to clinically observe the aged painter, Strauch, who happens to be the brother of this young man's surgical mentor. The catch is this: Strauch must not know the young man's true occupation or the reason for his arrival. Posing as a promising law student with a love of Henry James, the young man befriends the mad artist and is caught up among an equally extraordinary cast of local characters, from his resentful landlady to the town's mining engineers

Early one morning a doctor sets out with his son on his daily rounds through the forbidding moutainous countryside. Their visits, a succession of grotesque portraits- a diabetic industrialist living in incestuous isolation with his half-sister; three brothers, occupying a mill set in a deep gorge, who have just strangled a bevy of exotic birds; a crippled musical prodigy whose sister locks him in a cage- lead them to a castle and a paranoid prince, whose 'almost uninterrupted monologue for a hundred pages is a virtuoso verbal performance ... an extraordinary, somber first novel

"An unnamed writer arrives at an "artistic dinner" hosted by a composer and his society wife, a couple he once admired and has come to loathe. The guest of honor, a distinguished actor from the Burgtheater, is late. As the other guests wait impatiently, they are seen through the critical eye of the writer, who narrates a silent but frenzied tirade against these former friends, most of whom have been brought together by Joana, a woman they buried earlier that day. Reflections on Joana's life and suicide are mixed with these denunciations until the famous actor arrives, bringing an explosive end to the evening that even the writer could not have seen coming."--P. [4] of cover

"Les peintres n'ont pas peint ce qu'ils auraient dû peindre, mais uniquement ce qu'on leur a commandé, ou bien ce qui leur procurait ou leur rapportait l'argent ou la gloire, a-t-il dit. Les peintres, tous ces maîtres anciens qui, la plupart du temps, me dégoûtent plus que tout et qui m'ont depuis toujours donné le frisson, a-t-il dit, n'ont jamais servi qu'un maître, jamais eux-mêmes et ainsi l'humanité elle-même. Ils ont tout de même toujours peint un monde factice qu'ils tiraient d'eux-mêmes, dont ils espéraient obtenir l'argent et la gloire ; tous ils n'ont peint que dans cette optique, par envie d'argent et par envie de gloire, pas parce qu'ils avaient voulu être peintres mais uniquement parce qu'ils voulaient avoir la gloire ou l'argent ou la gloire en même temps que l'argent."--Gallimard
