from the book's cover:
The worry haunting the anonymous author in
Peter Handke’s new novel is the phobia of los-
ing touch with language and of now not being
able to move on with both his paintings or his
life. After a morning at his desk—where,
for him, a sentence placed to paper is an occasion
and the most useful connection to the world—he
ventures out for a walk.
The writer’s afternoon odyssey takes him
from the heart of the unnamed ecu
city to its outskirts, to a peripheral quarter
comparable to the fringe of goals or the
frontiers of language. He is alternately re-
lieved to be out on the earth, the place the 1st

an appointment with one in all his translators.
An older guy, he was once himself as soon as a author,
and this present day is chuffed accurately simply because he is
no longer one. A translator, he says, has the
certainty that he's needed.

Believing that the author is dispossessed in 20th-century tradition, the narrator is thrown again upon himself to confront the nullity of his discourse; his younger religion in his calling has collapsed into disenchantment and worry that by way of chickening out from society to put in writing, he has de-legitimized his voice. but the narrator concludes with the confirmation to "continue to paintings the main ephemeral of fabrics, my breath," with no reduction or concealment of literature's drained props, therefore reassuring Handke's admirers that the writer will proceed to tax and thrill them along with his Mallarmean opacities.

A web page, probably , after which comes the giddy present of an afternoon's stroll during the urban. commentary and instinct are this writer's instruments as he recharges himself with the adventure of existence. The simplicity of snow and vegetation supplies solution to the complexity of the "Gin Mill" crowd and a disagreement with the Translator.

A squeaking door. During the day, a mirror propped against the wall by the door diminishes me and my time. At night, it leaves its simple tricks and breathes in barely trembling clouds caught by moonlight in the stillness: "Several lives go on inside me, but there's no place for me in any one of them. I think you know this feeling well. " On careful observation, as if penetrating the film of the eyelids, mirrors lagged by the smallest fraction of anticipation, showing that the matrix of shadows had the nature ofliquid crystal.
