About Malina

Product Description Now a New Directions book, the legendary novel that is “equal to the best of Virginia Woolf and Samuel Beckett” (New York Times Book Review) In  Malina, originally published in German in 1971, Ingeborg Bachmann invites the reader into a world stretched to the very limits of language. An unnamed narrator, a writer in Vienna, is torn between two men: viewed, through the tilting prism of obsession, she travels further into her own madness, anxiety, and genius.  Malina explores love, "deathstyles," the roots of fascism, and passion. Review “Exhilarating and claustrophobic” - Will Harrison, Hudson Review “Bachmann's only novel―set in Vienna and first published in 1971―takes on the vexed struggle between the sexes in a decaying city. Dense, compelling, often weirdly funny, a dark fairy tale told as a murder mystery. Rewarding and highly recommended.” - Kirkus (starred) “A variation on the detective novel:  Malina’s first-person narrator proceeds from the 'universal prostitution' of Vienna to the proximate causes of her destruction.” - Los Angeles Review of Books “It seems in Malina there is nothing Bachmann cannot do with words.” - Los Angeles Times “In place of Wittgenstein’s language as city, Malina creates a vision of Vienna as language, one might even say as mind: to what extent it may be feminine, masculine, or otherwise is impossible to discern.” - Jessie Ferguson, Music & Literature “Enigmatic, yet piercing: equal to the best of Virginia Woolf and Samuel Beckett.” - New York Times Book Review “A psychological thriller of a tormented, existential sort. And it’s a love triangle, though a triangle most accurately drawn with dotted lines, given that it’s debatable how many of its members are real....This revised translation appears at a time when the book feels quite contemporary. Though even innovative mainstream fiction now being published reads like “A Is for Apple” compared to Malina, there’s no question that the book shares a spirit with any and all books about the unsought psychological challenges of being a woman in this world. Lucid and powerful.” - John Williams, New York Times Book Review “A masterpiece!” - Naja Marie Aidt, Publishers Weekly “Bachmann’s vision is so original that the effect is like having a new letter of the alphabet.” - The Guardian “In the astonishing desolation and wonder that is Ingeborg Bachmann’s Malina... there is no certain narrative, but there are many, deeply internalised, stories.” - Nicci Gerard, The Guardian About the Author  (1926–1973) is widely regarded as one of the greatest German-language writers of the twentieth century.
