Reviews

"Peter Handke commands one of the great German-language prose styles of the postwar period, a riverine rhetoric deep and swift and contrary of current." --Joshua Cohen, The New York Times Book Review

"A searching exploration of how travel and storytelling can help us find our truest selves." --Poornima Apte, Booklist

"The renowned Austrian novelist looks back on a body of work and a terrible century in this elegiac tale . . . Some of Handke's text is a kind of meditation on history . . . And some is simply lovely . . . Stellar." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
