It is always beneficial to reflect on literature in basic and unusual contexts instead of categorizing it in terms of writing and reading – and Thomas Stangl is a master of this art.
»Inferno is a real discovery. An expressive, almost cinematic piece of literature that gives a silhouette of the time between the first pogroms and the end of World War II.« (Paul Jandl, NZZ)
»Bernhard Strobel manages with the cold view of a surgeon to capture even the smallest proliferation in the mesh of a relationship. His novel is an interpersonal psycho-thriller.«
(Ulrich Rüdenauer, Süddeutsche Zeitung)
»There are books that take your breath, that fill every single muscle with highest tension, and that take possession of the reader. Ally Kleins debut novel is definitely one of those stirring books.« (Björn Hayer, Spiegel Online)
Here you can read an interview of Andrea Scrima with Ally Klein.
»A literary concept album with a visual prose-poetry that is accessible and catchy as well as it has the spirit of the teenage rebellion like the best songs of the history of rock music.« (Gerald Lind, literaturhaus.at)
No other writer, with the possible exception of Helmut Qualtinger, has captured Austrian mentality – whether of intellectuals or the general populace – more accurately than the Carinthian-born Viennese resident Antonio Fian.
»It is widely known that fun and crudeness go together well in Austria, but Fian has found a particularly modern and contemporary way to couple the two.« (Klaus Kastberger, ex libris Ö1)
In the over 80 dramolettes of You cannot know everything, we once again encounter the multiple facets of Austrian nature, be it good or evil, as well as political and cultural opinion leaders.
