Reading Thomas Bernhard

Barbara Sternberg

2013, 21:43 minutes, colour, English


Thomas Berhard’s “parable-like anecdotes in “The Voice Imitator”- some drawn from newspaper reports, some from conversation, some from hearsay – are satiric, subtle, and acerbic….a mini-anthology of Bernhard’s obsessions with lunacy, death, corruption…”

Reading Thomas Bernhard selects nine of these 104 stories, reflecting Sternberg’s obsessions as they intersect with Berhard. These are read by people of various ages and genders in a variety of locales. While reading, we are living.
