It has been some time since I last read a book so dark and biting to the core. The honesty forthcoming from Marlen Haushofer is astounding. This is a penetrating study for living in the world, and not necessarily in harmony with it. In fact, the opposite is true.
Being my first exposure to Haushofer I am indeed excited to read her other novels, especially her most well-known title of all, [b:The Wall|586852|The Wall|Marlen Haushofer|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1435260852s/586852.jpg|573687]. One of my favorite contemporary writers,[a:Claire-Louise Bennett|6431820|Claire-Louise Bennett|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1443673781p2/6431820.jpg], mentions it in her most recent collection [b:Pond|28672083|Pond|Claire-Louise Bennett|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1453451513s/28672083.jpg|45069198].
