From the life of Hödlmoser
A Styrian novel with stage direction
Hödlmoser, an anachronistic hero, assumes the traditional attitude of the simple man: lover, paterfamilias, mountain climber, poacher, alcoholic, armchair politician, ruffian, patricide, cuckold.
The comic element arises
from the wide discrepancy between action and language.
... when Styria falls to pieces, so does Austria.
Reinhard P. Gruber, born in 1947 in Fohnsdorf, Styria, studied theology and philosophy in Vienna and now lives as a writer in Stainz, Styria. Author of many books, among them the Austrian bestseller „Aus dem Leben Hödlmosers“ (Scenes from the life of Hödlmoser) which brought him to fame in 1973, and winner of several Austrian literary awards.
