Our August country is Austria. Anyone with any suggestions for books? Please provide by July 20. I'll then poll everyone about the final suggestion.

Haven't had the chance to look for any Austrian books yet, but caught this on the news...

"An Austrian atheist has won the right to be shown on his driving-licence photo wearing a pasta strainer as "religious headgear"."

I wonder if there will be any novels as interesting as this Austrian 'Pastafarian'??

My suggestions are...

The Piano Teacher by Elfriede Jelinek
The Loser by Thomas Bernhard
Auto Da Fe by Elias Canetti
February Shadows by Elisabeth Reichart
Night Work by Thomas Glavinic
The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka

I think I'm going to go for The Loser, unless something comes up later.
