Short Letter, lengthy Farewell translated by means of Ralph Manheim
A Sorrow past goals: A existence tale translated by way of Ralph Manheim

Three of Handke's previous works....I've incorporated a evaluation from amazon that i feel has a few personality, regardless of typos or outright spelling errors:

this is early paintings of handke's which, judging by means of its revenues ranking, isn't so well known. simply why this can be - good, it's a secret to me; this isn't in basic terms his top paintings, yet it's the paintings which has made him one of many nice german novelists of the previous century. those 3 brief novels (the goalie's anxiousness on the penalty kick; brief letter, lengthy farewell; a sorrow past desires) seize handke at his experimental top - breaking down language as he breaks down personality - whereas additionally supplying incrediblly piercing mental perception. notwithstanding his phrases weave webs (chunky webs), rather than being misplaced, the reader starts to understand a brand new experience of language, thereby openning new figuring out towards personality and psychology. goalie is the main tough and such a lot lucrative, yet all 3 delay good to handke's hard-handed note play. those novels additionally truly enjoy the discoveries handke had made together with his early level works self accusation and offending the viewers. notwithstanding the publication might turn out a bit tricky to discover i like to recommend it.
