The Sunday edition of theKärntner Volkszeitungcarried the following item under Local News: “In the village of A. (G. township), a housewife, aged 51, committed suicide on Friday night by taking an overdose of sleeping pills.” So opensA Sorrow Beyond Dreams, the eminent Austrian novelist and playwright’s reckoning with his mother’s life of grinding poverty—which spanned the rise of the Nazis, World War II, and the postwar era—and of her ultimate suicide. Both stark and lyrical, full of love, anger, admiration, and a keen sense of history, this slim book stands in contrast to Peter Handke’s other cooler, more avant-garde work. Here he is direct and powerful, and the result is the most moving and accessible work in his career. It is “indispensable” (The Boston Globe).

Peter Handke was born in Griffen, Austria on December 6, 1942. He studied law at Graz University from 1961 to 1965. He is a playwright, novelist, poet, and essayist. His plays include Offending the Audience, Kaspar, and The Ride across Lake Constance. His novels include The Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick, The Left-Handed Woman, and A Sorrow beyond Dreams. He was awarded the Buchner Prize in 1973 and refused to accept the Kafka Prize in 1979.

Jeffrey Eugenides was born in Detroit, Michigan on March 8, 1960. He received a B.A. from Brown University and an M.A. in English and creative writing from Stanford University in 1986. His first novel, The Virgin Suicides, was published to in 1993 and was made into a feature film. His other works include Middlesex, which won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, and The Marriage Plot. He is a professor of creative writing at Princeton University.
