Summary:
"In The Merchant's contracts, Jelinek brings us a comedy of economics, where the babble and media spin of spectators leave small investors alienated and bearing the brunt of the economic crisis. In the age of the global economy, Jelinek turns the story of a merchant of Vienna into a universal comedy of errors, making this her most accessible work."--Dustjacket of book.
"In Rechnitz (the exterminating angel), a chorus of messengers reports on the circumstances of the massacre of 180 Jews, an actual event that took place near the Austrian-Hungarian border town of Rechnitz. More than a docu-drama, this work explores the very transmission of historic memory and has been called Jelinek's best perfromance text to date."--Dustjacket of book.
