About this deal

A differenza dei precedenti Bernahrd finora letti, il personaggio centrale del romanzo (se romanzo lo possiamo chiamare) non è l’io narrante, ma una persona altra (Wertheimer) osservata e descritta dall’io narrante e utilizzata per ritrarre in negativo l’uomo geniale, rappresentato dal virtuoso di pianoforte Glenn Gould. Registered address: Unit 31, Vulcan House Business Centre, Vulcan Road, Leicester, LE5 3EF, United kingdom.

Werthemier - the titular Loser - finds himself woefully dwarfed by the perfection of Gould as a piano artist. Glenn Gould è tutto ciò che Wertheimer non è, e Wertheimer è un soccombente, un uomo da vicolo cieco, un uomo destinato al fallimento e all’infelicità. Los tres son buenos, pero uno de ellos brilla con luz propia, así que, incapaces de enfrentarse a la idea de no poder superarle, de no ser los mejores, los otros dos abandonan su carrera como pianistas. This parting slap in the face of his native country thus came not only as a surprise; it came from the hand of a dead man, whose laughter rang out from the grave.El virtuoso, el intérprete que maravilla al mundo, no corre mejor suerte: obsesionado con la idea de ser un mero vehículo entre Bach y el piano, su don le tortura tanto como a sus dos compañeros de estudios. One really takes pleasure in knowing the ascension of a Genius, but what about those Losers who were born as a result of the existence of such Genius. Now I don’t know why, but I convinced myself that he had the perfect face to feature in a Gangster Hollywood Movie, you know, like Public Enemies, in a negative role or along the same lines, but anything but positive. Ma è proprio questa sua esagerazione che, spingendo le sue affermazioni fino all’antinomia e raggiungendo effetti grotteschi, riesce a salvarlo e salva il lettore, con più di un sorriso o risata liberatoria.

This relationship was rooted in their common idea and understanding of music, and it forged a lifelong bond between the three. I've never minded that my name's Barry Loser because my coolness has always cancelled it out, but ever since Darren Darrenofski joined school with his horrible little crocodile face he's been completely ruining my life about it. Because it takes some acumen to even recognize a genius and be aware of one's own abilities and deficiencies.He took the idea of Gould of being a genius and a rebel, the unnamed character possibly reflected Bernhard’s own insecurities and failures. Barry tells us about his life, in his own words (helpfully spell checked by Jim Smith) and with some drawings (well, lots of drawings) to ensure that we know exactly what he's talking about.

Reading Bernhard feels like the children's superstition of holding one's breath in a car while passing a cemetery. The sale of customised goods or perishable goods, sealed audio or video recordings, or software, which has been opened. Bernhard doesn't treat his characters that would have us believe these men are artists with a higher meaning and sensibility than we mere mortals , he loves playing in anyway he sees fit to turn even the highbrows in bumbling fools. His later novels, including The Loser, contain characters which carry an image of the author in themselves.

The novel is fueled by a peculiar intensity, and his unique prose style infused with a venomous extreme bitterness is something that simply seeps into one's consciousness with no intention of leaving any time soon. Bernhard's satirical narrators are against everything: especially mountains, in this case the Alps, nature, people, society, art, any and all institutions, the church, the state, you name it.

Pero todavía no ha conseguido ningún pianista hacerse a sí mismo superfluo, siendo Steinway, según Glenn. Be careful, though - there's a danger of actual tears and serious stomach-hurt from doubling-over with laughter. Barry’s mum has become a bit of celebrity, and now he can’t go anywhere without seeing a poster of her eating a chocolate digestive or wiggling her bum in a pair of jeans. Esta observación, sin embargo, la hace todo el mundo, decía, pensé, porque todo el mundo dice algo ininterrumpidamente y es malentendido, en ese único punto se entienden sin embargo todos, decía, pensé.

Not only does he giggle uncontrollably and wear a goofy giraffe hat, he actually loves everything about school -- his teacher, his studies, and even the extracurricular activities. It is this fact that these two cannot seem to reconcile, one quits the piano altogether, and the other just can't be bothered with existing. The relationship that the three share begs the question - what if their paths hadn't crossed with Gould?
