About

Peter Handke’s novel The Goalie’s Anxiety (translated with that title by Michael Roloff), with its emphasis on the signs we read and misread to make sense of the world, is a primary inspiration for this blog.

  1. Dear Scott, thanks for publishing this exact and very intersting report and for mentioning Der SPIEGEL. Just a little addendum: I was the main writer of the piece “Mann gegen Mann” and moreover have investigated the story of the “corpes”-quote. You have left out my name in your list of SPIEGEL-authors, which would no big thing normally, but as this may be my only (and very small) contribution to the history of world literature I would have been flattered if you would have mentioned it also. Best, Sebastian Hammelehle (https://www.spiegel.de/plus/peter-handke-wie-ein-falsches-handke-zitat-um-die-welt-ging-a-00000000-0002-0001-0000-000166490236)

      Dear Sebastian, it is important, I agree, that you be credited for your work and I thank you for the addition. Unfortunately, the entire text I have posted is from Suhrkamp Verlag and not my own to change. Your comment, at least, will stand here now with that text. Scott
