Theory Of Nothing

or Just Theory

Remember The Piano Teacher?

It was written by Elfriede Jelinek in 1983, adapted into a film starring the wonderful Isabelle Huppert 6 years ago.

Jelinek, who is famously agoraphobic and lives reclusively in her homes in Vienna and Munich, Germany, has decided to publish her latest book, Neid (German for “Envy”) online. The first two chapters are already up on her website.

In an email interview (but of course) with The Associated Press, she said, “I find the Internet to be the most wonderful thing there is. It connects people. Everyone can have input. It’s a wonderfully democratic method, publishing a text on the Internet.”

Jelinek is 60, Austrian, and the Nobel literature laureate. Some of her works such as, Wonderful, Wonderful Times, Women as Lovers and Lust have been considered pornographic.


I have not read enough Jelinek. But I had fun with The Piano Teacher. And someday I will write about the democracy of the internet.
