Her Not All Her is a play about, from, and to the great Swiss writer Robert Walser, by the great Austrian writer and Nobel Prize winner Elfriede Jelinek. It highlights what Jelinek calls ‘the fundamental fragmentation’ of Walser’s voice, revealing Walser as ‘one of those people who, when they said “I”, did not mean themselves’. Presented here in a prize-winning translation by Damion Searls, it shows Jelinek to be an impassioned virtuoso reader of classic European writers. The cahier contains an essay by the Director of the Robert Walser Centre, Reto Sorg, and thirteen paintings by the British artist Thomas Newbolt.

“Like many of the numbers that precede it, this cahier’s size belies its substance, resonance, and weight. This book has resonance, a power generated and magnified by every layer of its substance. It deserves a very wide readership and it is worth owning as a work of art in itself.”

      Translated from German by Damion Searls
Afterword: In the Penal Colony
