Slow Homecoming book. Not so much postmodern as antediluvian' - Benjamin Kunkel. Slowly coming around to the idea of Handke as one of the great postwar European writers. Much like Repetition, this book is an uncompromising spiritual quest.
3. Nature’s taunting evasiveness is the conundrum at the heart of Peter Handke’s Slow Homecoming.
While thinking about these two titles I was lucky enough to attend a screening of Exit Through the Gift Shop, a feature-length film directed by stencil-art maverick Banksy. 3. The novel consists of three parts, a middle section in which Handke interjects a first-person rhapsody about his process bookended by third-person narratives of wandering and wondering.
Slow Homecoming, originally published in the late 1970s, is central to his achievement and to the powerful influence he has exercised on other writers, chief among them . A novel of self-questioning and self-discovery, Slow Homecoming is a singular odyssey, an escape from the distractions of the modern world and the unhappy consciousness, a voyage that is fraught and fearful but ultimately restorative, ending on an unexpected note of joy. The book begins in America.
