Free read Ó An einem Tag wie diesem 109 Lead him back to the province of his youth back to his hometown in Switzerland where he returns to familiar streets where his brother still lives in their childhood home and where Fabienne a woman he was obsessed with in his youth visits the same lake they once swam in together Andreas still consumed with longing for his lost love and blinded by the uncertainty of his future is tormented by the uestion of what might have been if things had happened differently Peter Stamm has been praised as a “stylistic ascetic” and his prose as “distinguished by lapidary expression telegraphic terseness and finely tuned sensitivity” Bookforum In On a Day Like This Stamm’s unobtrusive observational style. At first I was reminded of the main character in Night Train to Lisbon whom I liked Can t give this one three stars because I went from feeling neutral about Andreas here to not liking him much by the end Setting and description are well done but I guess it s a matter of lacking European sensibility rather than a translation issue I feel Not interested in reading by this author

Free read Ó An einem Tag wie diesem 109 Allows us to journey with our antihero through his crises of banality of living in his empty world and the realization that life is finite that one must live it as long as that is possiblePraise for Unformed Landscape“Sensitive and unnerving An uncommonly intimate work one that will remind the reader of his or her own lived experience with a greater intensity than many of the books that are published right here at home” The New Republic Online“If Albert Camus had lived in an age when people in remote Norwegian fishing villages had e mail he might have written a novel like this” The New Yorker“Unformed Landscape has a refreshing purity a lack of delusion a lack of hype” Los Angeles Tim. I m a fan of Peter Stamm s short stories especially the collection We re Flying and thought I d try some longer fiction This novel reads uickly and feels almost like a long short story Andreas a teacher of German in a school outside Paris is floating through his life when he s caught unaware by a medical diagnosis Fearful of the results he opts to sever his connections with the school and his life and sets himself off on a course of reckoning with a past that s never been far from his thoughtsThe story s clear and engaging though it feels a little monotone It s hard to tell whether that s Andreas bleeding into the narrative or just Stamm s writing style in a longer piece I certainly felt infuriated by Andreas at points which I think we re meant to do but it s hard to get too excited about a middle aged man waffling over the decision to live his life or not The cover flap describes him as an anti hero and therein lies the key I suppose I ll have to give another Stamm novel a try next

Characters An einem Tag wie diesem

Free read Ó An einem Tag wie diesem 109 A new novel of artful understatement about mortality estrangement and the absurdity of life from the acclaimed author of Unformed Landscape and In Strange GardensOn a day like any other Andreas changes his life When a routine doctor’s visit leads to an unexpected prognosis a great yearning takes hold of him but who can tell if it is homesickness or wanderlust Andreas leaves everything behind sells his Paris apartment; cuts off all social ties; uits his teaching job; and waves goodbye to his days spent idly sitting in cafes to look for a woman he once loved half a lifetime ago The monotony of days has been keeping him in check; now he hopes for a miracle and for a new beginning Andreas’ travels. The challenge with this novel is to care The story suggests the main character Andreas is about forty He spent eighteen years in Paris teaching and now he wonders why His life has been empty without purpose or affect He is handsome so he has had ample sex but no emotional ties No ties of any sort Adrift And he doesn t much care So why should wePeter Stamm s writing is spare Understated No lush descriptions No violent outbursts Everything flows very smoothly But watching that sleek surface flow past calm controlled we become like Andreas indifferent In fiction as in life emotion is two thirds of it and if not two thirds then half And if not half then you begin to wonder whether you have lived whether there is a story here after allThe narrative is third person We hear what people think not much And what they feel even less Andreas has a crisis in a mild way And he takes drastic action in a calm way Everything is in keeping with what we have already seen It is all beyond arm s length It is across the street You can t touch the characters They move in sight but out of reach And barely within hearing They are no one you know Or are likely to care aboutIbsen said that when he first started a play the characters were like people he had seen in a railway station After further work on the play the characters were like people he had known for a few weeks And after yet work when the play was done the characters were like intimate friendsPeter Stamm should have worked on this novel until the characters became like intimate friends Then he should have shown them to us in that light And if the answer is that he did and they are if this is who Andreas and the others are in the full flat indifferent shallow then why on earth should we care
