Peter Handke (1942) es uno de los escritores actuales más importantes, polémicos y populares en lengua alemana. Publicada en 1972, CARTA BREVE PARA UN LARGO ADIÓS adopta, aparentemente, una de las formas más clásicas de la literatura alemana, la del "Entwicklungsroman" (la novela de formación de un carácter a través de la experiencia vivida). Pero lo que Handke describe en esta novela tradicional y revolucionaria, realista y romántica, relato de aventuras y de formación, que tiene América como telón de fondo y catalizador, no es tanto un viaje como un descenso; no una realidad, sino "su" realidad: una peregrinación al fondo de sí mismo en la que vuelve a enfrentarse con todos los traumas y terrores de su infancia austriaca.

Peter Handke
An odyssey through the mind and memory of a washed-up writer, from one of Europe’s most provocative novelists

Mysteriously summoned to a houseboat on the Morava River, a few friends, associates, and collaborators of an old writer listen as he tells a story that will last until dawn: the tale of the once well-known writer’s recent odyssey across Europe. As his story unfolds, it visits places that represent stages of the narrator’s and the continent’s past, many now lost or irrecoverably changed through war, death, and the subtler erosions of time. His wanderings take him from the Balkans to Spain, Germany, and Austria, from a congress of experts on noise sickness to a clandestine international gathering of jew’s-harp virtuosos. His story and its telling are haunted by a beautiful stranger, a woman who has a preternatural hold over the writer and appears sometimes as a demon, sometimes as the longed-for destination of his travels.

Powerfully alive, honest, and at times deliciously satirical, The Moravian Night explores the mind and memory of an aging writer, tracking the anxieties, angers, fears, and pleasures of a life inseparable from the recent history of Central Europe. In crystalline prose, Peter Handke traces and interrogates his own thoughts and perceptions while endowing the world with a mythic dimension. As Jeffrey Eugenides writes, “Handke’s sharp eye is always finding a strange beauty amid this colorless world.” The Moravian Night is at once an elegy for the lost and forgotten and a novel of self-examination and uneasy discovery, from one of world literature’s great voices.
