The Weight of Things is the first book, and possibly the only translatable book by Austrian writer Marianne Fritz. After winning acclaim with this novel she embarked on an ambitious 10,000-page literary project called “The Fortress” which earned her cult status. In this, her first novel, we discover a rather brilliant and masterful satirist, philosophically minded yet raging with anger and wit, who under the guise of a domestic horror story manages to expose the hypocrisy and deep abiding cruelties running parallel, over time, through the society and the individual minds of a century.
