THE LIME WORKS
The excitement! I'm just starting on the last remaining of Thomas Bernhard's approximately two dozen novels! What I love most about Bernhard is that every novel is the same novel, the novel before the novel you're reading will be the same as the novel you read after the novel you're reading, as will the novel after that novel and the novel after that novel and so on, and what I also love about Bernhard is he writes exactly like this, tiring you with repetition upon repetition upon you realize life is repetition after repetition, all tangled up in the head of a first-person narrator or a third-person narrator or who cares, he makes me happy especially now that I have in my hands The Lime Works, the last of his novels to pass through my hands, yes The Lime Works is the last of them, they've all passed through my hands but The Lime Works, which I had to find at the university library where I nearly expired with joy, at finally getting my hands on The Lime Works, which while not the last of his works is the last of his works I haven't read, and the thought of reading it, of reading the last of Bernhard's novels in the form of The Lime Works, is tremendously exciting. Tremendously!
