The self-destruction of a soccer goalie turned construction worker who wanders aimlessly around a stifling Austrian border town after pursuing and then murdering, almost unthinkingly, a female movie cashier is mirrored by Handke's use of direct, sometimes fractured prose that conveys the dislocation and deja vu of modern twentieth-century life.


A seamless blend of lyricism and horror seen in the runes of a disintegrating world Boston Sunday Globe
