A complete reprint of Peter Handke’s 1986 novel Repetition. Translated from the German by Ralph Manheim has just been published by The Last Books. (Image above via Flowerville.)

In Repetition, Handke allows the peculiar light which illuminates the space under a leafy canopy or a tent canvas to glisten – between words, placed here with astounding – caution and precision; in doing so, he succeeds in making the text into a sort of ?refuge amid the arid lands which, even in the culture industry, grow larger day by day.” —W.G. Sebald, Across the Border
