Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The setting is an idyllic Alpine village where a women's underwear factory nestles in the woods. Two factory workers, Brigitte and Paula, dream and talk about finding happiness, a comfortable home and a good man. They realise that their quest will be as hard as work at the factory. Brigitte subordinates her feelings and goes for Heinz, a young, plump, up-and-coming businessman. With Paula, feelings and dreams become confused. She gets pregnant by Erich, the forestry worker. He's handsome, so they marry. Brigitte gets it right. Paula gets it wrong.

Synopsis:

Two Alpine factory workers who dream of finding a good man. Employing the conventions of romantic fiction, Jelinek dissects the double-standard by which women are held in their traditional place. "An unrelenting look at the bleak correspondence between marriage, capitalism and sex. Every sentence slams home a truth."--Voice Literary Supplement
