    Description""Greed" is another intriguing and challenging novel from Europe's cleverest, most visceral social phobic."--"The List"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.Always controversial, Jelinek was considered a bold choice for the Nobel Prize. The Swedish academy applauded her linguistic zeal and analytic prowess, while her critics have been scandalized by her satirical critiques of patriarchy and her masochistic heroines.The leading Austrian writer of her generation, Elfriede Jelinek has been awarded the Heinrich Boll Prize and the Nobel Prize for Literature.
