Malte  Herwig - Master of Twilight


"[...] engaging [...] astute [...] this is an elegant, well-informed biography, beautifully produced and with a helpful chronology appended."

Times Literary supplement

"A clever play of questions, reserved and at a high level of sensibility."

Die Welt

"Herwig knows how to pull together a vast amount of material and to formulate it brilliantly."

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

"As intractable as Handke has been about answering journalists’ questions, he takes on here rather a playful attitude in his conversations with Herwig."

Süddeutsche Zeitung

"The new edition of his Handke biography Master of Twilight, augmented by a very interesting chapter on the Nobel Prize.”

Literarische Welt

"[Herwig's] stringently progressing and well-formulated biography, both pleasurable and profitable to read, illuminates an author whose existence is wrought with high tension."

Augsburger Allgemeine

"A biography that can well be read as a journey into the inner life of someone who has been plagued by a thousand demons."
