Peter Handke: Repetition
A reissue of Ralph Manheim’s English translation of Handke’s 1986 novel Repetition, previously out of print for a quarter of a century.
“In ‘Repetition’, Handke allows the peculiar light which illuminates the space under a leafy canopy or a tent canvas to glisten between words, placed here with astounding caution and precision; in doing so, he succeeds in making the text into a sort of refuge amid the arid lands which, even in the culture industry, grow larger day by day.”
—W. G. Sebald
