About the Author

Peter Handke was born in Griffen, Austria, in 1942. His many novels include The Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick, A Sorrow Beyond Dreams, and The Fruit Thief, all published by FSG. Handke is the recipient of many literary awards, including the Georg Büchner and Franz Kafka Prizes; in 2019, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature "for an influential work that with linguistic ingenuity has explored the periphery and the specificity of human experience." He lives outside Paris.

Krishna Winston is a professor emerita of German literature and environmental studies at Wesleyan University. She has been translating the work of Peter Handke since 1993. Her many other translations include works by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Günter Grass, Christoph Hein, and Werner Herzog. She lives in Connecticut.
