Winner of the 2004 Nobel Prize
In her first novel published in English since becoming the recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2004, Elfriede Jelinek delivers a stunning and unforgettable book.
Greed is the story of Kurt Janisch, an ambitious but frustrated country policeman, and the lonely women he seduces. It is a thriller set amid the mountains and small towns of southern Austria, where the investigation of a dead girl's body in a lake leads to the discovery of more than a single crime. In
her signature style, Jelinek chronicles the exploitative nature of relations between men and women, and the cruelties of everyday life.
