Hotel Waldhaus by Thomas Bernhard

Thomas Bernhard’s The Voice Imitator is one of his most darkly comic works. The book gives us a series of parable-like anecdotes; stories that depicts the absurdity of modern life.

 

Hotel Waldhaus

We had no luck with the weather and the guests at our table were repellent in every respect. They even spoiled Nietzsche for us. Even after they had had a fatal car accident and had been laid out in the church in Sils, we still hated them.
