Product Description

Austrian-born writer Peter Handke's first novel to be published in an English-language esdition, the book is a true modern classic portraying the self-destruction of a soccer goalie turned construction worker who wanders aimlessly around a stifling Austrian border town after pursuing and then murdering, almost, unthinkingly, a female cashier. Written in direct, sometimes fractured prose, the novel is reminiscent of Camu'sThe Stranger and Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment. The novel's re-emergence into print is, if not overdue, anxiously anticipated. 144p.
