Austrian writer Peter Handke‘s Crossing the Sierra de Gredos has recently been published in english. Handke wrote the book in 2002, but it’s taken longer than usual because of the controversy that continues to follow him. Handke’s interest and writing about Serbia has caused any conversation about him to be swamped by political and politically correct diatribes.
Many of Handke’s works should be on your reading list. If Handke wrote a blog, it might look like The Weight of the World. His Offending the Audience is a classic of the theater. And Slow Homecoming is a trio of beautifully interrelated stories.
The movie embeded above this blog entry is an adaptation of Handke’s L’histoire du demi-sommeil.
