Norbert Wehr, Editor-in-Chief

I feel as though I haven’t read much in 2013, or rather: I’ve read a great deal of Peter Handke and little else. But here are five titles that come to mind.

Albert Camus: The First Man

Peter Handke: Repetition

Imre Kertesz: Letzte Einkehr. Tagebücher 2001-2009 [Diaries]

Jonas Mekas: Alt ist dieses, unser Sprechen [Poems]

John Williams: Stoner
