Take 2 Sisters. Add 1 Brother freshly picked from a mental institution. Mix in some Suffocating Family Values and a pinch of Wittgenstein. Leave to simmer… Set over the course of a traditional family lunch, ‘Ritter, Dene, Voss’ examines the parochialism of Viennese upper middle class life and its stultifying effects on intellectual and artistic growth.

Thomas Bernhard (1931–89) is an astonishing voice in contemporary German letters, and widely established as one of the most important European writers since Beckett. With this unsettling trio, Bernhard exposes the patterns at play in the world around us, the systems created to understand it, and the games employed to try and control it.
