Two continents, two writers, two contemporaries. Bernhard has been dead for 20 years, Begley travels to Linz from the US to give a reading as part of a tribute to Bernhard.


Thomas Bernhard was born on 9th February, 1931, and died in Gmunden on 12th February, 1989. He left a substantial literary oeuvre that brought him world fame. At home he was regularly associated with sensationalist headlines. One of the most notorious occasions was in 1988, when quotations from his play “Heldenplatz” on the topic of Austria and National Socialism were torn from their context and used to whip up a scandal before the play’s premiere at the Vienna Burgtheater.
Louis Begley was born on 6th October, 1933 in Poland. In 1947 his family emigrated to the United States. In “Wartime Lies”, his long delayed literary debut, Begley describes his experiences as a Polish Jew under Nazi rule. His novel “Schmidt” was made into a film featuring Jack Nicholson as the eponymous protagonist. This illustrious US writer is a committed Bernhard reader.

I like #3 by far over the first 2 photos. I really like the blur on that one, as well as how the composition really draws the viewer into the image. Perfect example on how a photo does not have to have anything tack sharp in focus in order to be very effective.
