Extinction, his last novel, takes the form of the autobiographical testimony of Franz-Josef Murau. The intellectual black sheep of a powerful Austrian land-owning family, Murau lives in Rome in self-exile. Obsessed and angry with his identity as an Austrian, he resolves never to return to the family estate of Wolfsegg. But when news comes of his parents deaths, he finds himself master of Wolfsegg and must decide its fate.Written in Bernhards seamless style, Extinction is the ultimate proof of his extraordinary literary genius.Strangely gripping.

The glue that holds his remarkable novel together is the unique virtuosity of his imaginative prose, a highly original kind of writing that resembles musical patterns of theme, variations and recapitulation.—Steve Dowden, Washington TimesWith a breathtaking sustained intensity .

. . Bernhard assaults through the voice of Murau the modern world as exemplified by his birthplace, Austria.—Thomas McGonigle, Chicago Tribune BooksPerfectly balanced and continually interesting. . . . The particular fineness of Extinction lies in its depiction of a consciousness in action.—Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book WorldBernhards distinctive style .

. . is caught with quite remarkable fidelity in David McLintocks excellent translation . . . . The work of a master.—W.E. Yates, New York Times Book ReviewWhen Thomas Bernhard died, Austria lost one of its bravest authors . . . . David McLintocks translation . . . is exquisite. It presents an English far richer than most English language books . . . . Fresh, disturbed and punchy.—Benjamin Weissman, Los Angeles Times
