"The Uncle" is a text as clever as it is outrageous, a picaresque novel about a hero for whom the reader never knows whether he wants good or evil.
A rogue, philistine, trickster, family and love novel without precedent, funny and wicked, sad, morally dubious and heartwarming.
Elfriede Jelinek also thought so, writing the following about it:
"Someone writes who knows how things work. We like to go along with it a bit more comfortably, before the institution is turned into Kerbholz and we can no longer sit anywhere. I is another. I am more than another? Some are more than the many? Andre lead a double life, which is more difficult than two simple ones. One knows nothing of the other or the wrong thing? Disappointed become disappointed, and brothers become enemies, and who does the woman take? The more promising one? Sure! Read for yourself this promising book! Are you stuck? The book will push you until you see the light. Maybe in a simple family house from the early seventies? Anything is possible. You can end up anywhere, like the hawk in the henhouse."
