Yes by Thomas Bernhard

Yes by Thomas Bernhard

Annotation by S. D. Stewart

With this short novel, rather than immediately erect before the reader his trademark monolith of futility and despair, Bernhard builds up the possibility of hope and redemption before smashing it into shards on the cold, unforgiving boulders of Austria’s dark forested countryside. It is a compact and flawless realization of Bernhard’s world view, which regular readers of his work will immediately recognize as balm to their shadowed interiors, and new readers will either savor as welcome truth or recoil from in stark horror.
