This Ingeborg Bachmann Reader consists of works of poetry and fiction published during the life of the great Austrian writer. Brilliantly translated by Lilian M. Friedberg, Last Living Words (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 stands out as a strong woman and major literary figure.

Born in Klagenfurt, Austria, on June 25, 1926, Bachmann studied law and philosophy at the universities of Innsbruck, Graz, and Vienna. She received her degree, writing a dissertation on Martin Heidegger, from the University of Vienna in 1950. After graduating she became a scriptwriter at Radio Rot-Weiß-Rot in Vienna, and in 1953 won the Gruppe 47 Prize for her first collection of poems, Die gestundete Zeit (The Mortgage on Borrowed Time). Over the next many years, she produced numerous collections of poetry, fiction, and radio plays, including Anrufung des Großen Bären (Invocation of the Great Bear), the story collections Das dreißigse Jahr (The Thirtieth Year) and Simultan, and the novel Malina. Green Integer previously published an early work, Letters to Felician.
