Summary (From the publisher):

Last Living Words consists of works of poetry and fiction published during the life of the great Austrian writer. Brilliantly translated by Lilian Friedberg (winner of the Kayden Translation Award) presents a new perspective on this important, internationally renowned figure. Friedberg's Bachmann is no longer the frail and tortured writer presented in so many previous translations, but she stands as a woman and writer.
