The left-handed woman by Peter Handke( Book )

One evening, when Marianne and her husband, Bruno, are dining out together to celebrate his return from a business trip, Marianne listens to him speak and realizes suddenly yet finally that Bruno will leave her. Whether at that moment, or in years to come, she will be deserted. And instinctively Marianne knows she must fend for herself and her young son now, before that time comes. She sends Bruno away and settles down to a life alone, at first experiencing moments of panic, restlessly wandering in rooms grown stifling. The stillness of the house wears her down, and she starts taking long walks, or visiting with her close friend, Franziska. Gradually, what began as a selfish escape from the prospects of the future becomes in fact liberation. The environment she'd always hated--a no man's land of identical houses, with all curtains drawn--recedes; her relationships with those dear to her become less threatening, less necessary; and Marianne finds a new pattern for her life and the strength to go on alone
Short letter, long farewell by Peter Handke( Book )
169 editions published between 1972 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 1,761 libraries worldwide
Short Letter, Long Farewell is one the most inventive and exhilarating of the great Peter Handke's novels. Full of seedy noir atmospherics and boasting an air of generalized delirium, the book starts by introducing us to a nameless young German who has just arrived in America, where he hopes to get over the collapse of his marriage. No sooner has he arrived, however, than he discovers that his ex-wife is pursuing him. He flees, she follows, and soon the couple is running circles around each other across the length of America---from Philadelphia to St. Louis to the Arizona desert, and from Portland, Oregon, to L.A. Is it love or vengeance that they want from each other? Everything's spectacularly unclear in a book that is travelogue, suspense story, domestic comedy, and Western showdown, with a totally unexpected Hollywood twist at the end. Above all, Short Letter, Long Farewell is a love letter to America, its landscapes and popular culture, the invitation and the threat of its newness and wildness and emptiness, with the promise of a new life---or the corpse of an old one---lying just around the corner

Kein Urteil, kein literarisches Denkmal für eine Mutter, kein abgeschlossenes Bild, nach dessen Beendigung der Autor und mit ihm der Leser befreit aufatmen könnte, sondern die Beschreibung einer grausigen offenen Wunde. - Helmut Scheffel - Back cover. Peter Handke's mother, Maria Handke, committed suicide in 1971. Within a few weeks, Peter Handke set about the task of reconstructing his mother's life in the form of a narrative. As he explains in the story, he did this partly in order to come to terms with his own grief, by attempting to make sense of the path her life had taken, and partly to give substance to her existence by creating a memorial. Handke constantly assesses the course of his mother's life in relation to the social, historical, political, and cultural influences to which she was exposed. - Introduction of Manchester University Press edition (1993)

On a dark night I left my silent house by Peter Handke( Book )
48 editions published between 1977 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 822 libraries worldwide
A short, powerful new novel by one of the greatest writers in the German language. On a Dark Night I Left My Silent House is Peter Handke's evocative, moving, often fantastic, novel about one man's conflict with himself and his journey toward resolution. During one night shift, an unnamed, middle-aged pharmacist in Taxham, an isolated suburb of Salzburg, tells his story to a narrator. The pharmacist is known and well-respected, but lonely and estranged from his wife. He feels most comfortable wandering about in nature, collecting and eating hallucinogenic mushrooms. One day he receives a blow to the head that leaves him unable to speak, and the narrative is transformed from ironic description into a collection of sensual impressions, observations and reflections. The pharmacist, who is now called the driver, sets out on a quest, travelling into the Alps with two companions--a former Olympic skiing champion and a formerly famous poet--where he is beaten and later stalked by a woman. He drives through a tunnel and has a premonition of death, then finds himself in a surreal, foreign land. In a final series of bizarre, cathartic events, the driver regains his speech and is taken back to his pharmacy--back to his former life, but forever changed. A powerful, poetic exploration of language, longing and dislocation in the human experience, On a Dark Night I Left My Silent House reveals Handke at his magical best
Kaspar and other plays by Peter Handke( Book )
10 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in English and German and held by 785 libraries worldwide
Kaspar, Peter Handke's first full-length drama--hailed in Europe as "the play of the decade" and compared in importance to Waiting for Godot--is the story of an autistic adolescent who finds himself at a complete existential loss on the stage, with but a single sentence to call his own. Drilled by prompters who use terrifyingly funny logical and alogical language-sequences, Kaspar learns to speak "normally" and eventually becomes creative--"doing his own thing" with words; for this he is destroyed. In Offending the Audience and Self-Accusation, one-character "speak-ins," Handke further explores the relationship between public performance and personal identity, forcing us to reconsider our sense of who we are and what we know
Die Hornissen. Roman by Peter Handke( Book )
114 editions published between 1966 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 782 libraries worldwide
Im Jahr 1966 erschien Handkes erster Roman "Die Hornissen". Es ist der Versuch, die Entstehung eines Romans zu beschreiben. Ein Mann hat vor Jahren ein Buch gelesen: oder er hat das Buch nicht einmal gelesen, sondern es ist ihm nur von anderer Seite von dem Buch erzählt worden. Nun aber, eines Tages im Sommer, wird er, vielleicht durch eine Übereinstimmung dessen, was ihm selber zustößt, mit dem, was dem blinden Helden des Romans zugestoßen ist, eben an jenes verschollene Buch erinnert, von dem er meint, es vor Zeiten gelesen zu haben. Aus den zerbrochenen Stücken, an die er sich zu erinnern glaubt, aus Worten, aus Sätzen, aus halbverlorenen Bildern denkt der Mann den Roman aus, und zwar derart, daß unentscheidbar bleibt, ob das Geschehen in dem "neuen" Roman nur den "Helden" des alten Romans betrifft oder auch ihn, der ihn ausdenkt
