Description - My Year in the No-Man's-Bay by Peter Handke

Nobel Prize winner Peter Handke's autobiographical novel My Year in No-Man's Bay is a meditation on two decades of a writer's life culminating in a solitary, sobering year of reckoning (Publishers Weekly).

In his most substantial novel to date, Handke tells the story of an Austrian writer--a man much like Handke himself--who undergoes a metamorphosis from self-assured artist into passive observer and chronicler. He explores the world and describes his many severed relationships, from his tenuous contact with his son, to a failed marriage to the Catalan, to a doomed love affair with a former Miss Yugoslavia. As the writer sifts through his memories, he is also under pressure to complete his next novel, but he cannot decide how to come to terms with both the complexity of the world and the inability of his novel to reflect it.

Buy My Year in the No-Man's-Bay by Peter Handke from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
