Nobel Writer Gives Away Book Online

Reclusive 2004 Nobel laureaute, Elfriede Jelinek, is posting chapters of her latest work online. She’s a self described agoraphobic and could not even travel to pick up her $1.3 million prize check. Jelinek finds the internet freeing, allowing her to communicate and make relationships with others. Because of her love of the internet, she decided to publish her latest work online. It may be that this particular piece of prose may never be in book form, but Jelinek describes the online effort as a “wonderfully democratic method” of writing. Most of the website is in German although there are a few pieces that are translated.

She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com
