Short Letter, lengthy Farewell translated via Ralph Manheim
A Sorrow past desires: A existence tale translated by means of Ralph Manheim

Three of Handke's previous works....I've integrated a assessment from amazon that i believe has a few personality, regardless of typos or outright spelling errors:

this is early paintings of handke's which, judging by way of its revenues ranking, isn't so well known. simply why this can be - good, it's a secret to me; this isn't in simple terms his top paintings, yet it's the paintings which has made him one of many nice german novelists of the prior century. those 3 brief novels (the goalie's nervousness on the penalty kick; brief letter, lengthy farewell; a sorrow past goals) seize handke at his experimental top - breaking down language as he breaks down personality - whereas additionally offering incrediblly piercing mental perception. although his phrases weave webs (chunky webs), rather than being misplaced, the reader starts to understand a brand new feel of language, thereby openning new realizing towards personality and psychology. goalie is the main tough and such a lot profitable, yet all 3 delay good to handke's hard-handed observe play. those novels additionally sincerely enjoy the discoveries handke had made along with his early level works self accusation and offending the viewers. even though the e-book may well turn out a bit tricky to discover i like to recommend it.
