In this haunting suite of three fictions, Nobel Prize winner Peter Handke cements his reputation as one of the most talented writers of the Twentieth Century
In "The Long Way Around", a European scientist in Alaska finds himself in isolated "places and spaces" that are disturbed when he relocates to California, a disruption that ultimately drives him back home.
"The Lesson of Mont Sainte-Victoire" follows an autobiographical narrator to Provence, to the mountain that fascinated Cezanne, on a quest to restore his sense of self and revitalize his craft.
Finally, "Child Story" reveals a crack in one man's feelings of isolation through a father's reflections on his developing love for his daughter in the first ten years of her life.
In three interrelated fictions, the author of Repetition describes a sojourn in Alaska, Cezanne's mountain in Provence and a complicated father-daughter relationship. PW found the ``sombre, enigmatic'' work has reflective power but lacks narrative surge and memorable characterization.
