THE GOALIE'S ANXIETY AT THE PENALTY KICK
by Peter Handke
translated by Michael Roloff
published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux

*

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 "at its best a seamless blend of lyricism and horror seen in the runes of a disintegrating world" (Boston Sunday Globe).
