The Piano Teacher Elfriede Jelinek Deep passion, thwarted sexuality and love-hate for a mother dominate the life of Erika Kohut, a piano teacher at the Vienna Conservatory. Into this emotional pressure-cooker bounds Walter Klemmer, music student and ladies' man. Jelinek's masterpiece, The Piano Teacher was for Publishers' Weekly "Brilliant and uncompromising."

Elfriede Jelinek was born on October 20, 1946 in M�rzzuschlag, Styria, Austria. She is an Austrian playwright and novelist. Jelinek was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2004. Jelinek started writing poetry at a young age. She made her literary debut with the collection Lisas Schatten (Lisa's Shadow) in 1967 and received her first literary prize in 1969. Female sexuality, its abuse, and the battle of the sexes in general are prominent topics in her work. Her works include: Wir sind Lockv�gel, Baby! (We are Decoys, Baby!), Die Liebhaberinnen (Women as Lovers) and Die Klavierspielerin (The Piano Teacher). That last novel was the basis for the 2001 Austrian film of the same name, The Piano Teacher, directed by Michael Haneke and starring French actress Isabelle Huppert. When awarded the Nobel prize in 2004, Jelinek was criticized for not accepting the prize in person; instead, a video message was presented at the ceremony. Jelinek revealed that she suffers from agoraphobia and social phobia, so she was more comfortable accepting via video. Jelinek was also awarded many other prizes for her literature. These include: Georg B�chner Prize, 1998; Franz Kafka Prize, 2004; and the German M�lheimer Dramatikerpreis award three times, 2004, 2009 and 2011.
