I prefer THE REPETITION which is the re-writing of SORROW, about 15 years later. see handke--revista-of-reviews.blogspot.com/2010/05/index-page-for-handke-revista-of. for review collections of all Handke books.

As of 2005 this has been translated under the title YESTERDAY ON THE ROAD

This has not been translated, GESTERN UNTERWEGS. it is the fourth and last of Handke' diary novels, all marvelous if read in conjunction with the works he was then writing. WEIGHT OF THE WORLD is the first, my favorite is HISTORY OF THE PENCIL which does not exist in English but in French, Spanish and Italian, and perhaps also other languages.
